Last year I spent one hour in the Louvre in Paris, so this is a post about whether it was worth it?
Well I suppose I should say that I’d never intended to just spend one hour in the Louvre. We had woken early with the intention of spending the full morning in the Louvre before heading back to the airport at lunchtime for our flight home. We got there at 8.30 so we could get in promptly when it opened at 9am and having been let into the entrance to buy our ticket we stood in line and waited, then sat and waited, and time went on and on. We had a great view of the stunning architecture of the Louvre but nothing else. No-one was being let in!
I say we, I was in Paris for the Efluent conference and that morning I was with Laura from Tired Mummy of Two and Kaye of K Elizabeth. The hotel we had stayed in was fine but you should take a look at this post about the best hotels in Paris for more recommendations. We had struggled to open our eyes after a fun evening the night before so a morning sitting on the floor in the Louvre was not really what we envisaged. However when we were finally let in we decided not to follow all the crowds to the Mona Lisa, hoping they would have dispersed a little before we got there and instead enjoyed the Egyptian exhibits practically to ourselves as everyone jostled for space at the Mona Lisa.
