Getting to the Louvre
The large glass pyramid makes the site instantly recognisable - and if you take the metro to visit the Louvre Museum, you'll get off directly underneath this famous structure. The stop to look for is Palais Royal/Musée du Louvre, on lines 1 and 7.
When you arrive, check which entrance to go to. If you have already booked your ticket, go to the Passage Richeliu, but if you are buying it on the day, you'll need to enter through the Pyramid box office. Look out - some people get free entry! These include anyone under 18, EEA residents between 18 and 25, job seekers, and disabled visitors and their carers.
Getting around the museum
The art in the Louvre Museum is divided between eight departments. If you want to know what to visit in the Louvre with limited time, you're best off following one of the museum's visitor trails. The Masterpieces trail showcases some of the best paintings in the Louvre, including the Mona Lisa, works by Arcimboldo and Raphael, and the emblematic French piece, Liberty Leading the People.
If you'd rather find the best art in the Louvre for yourself, you can download an audio guide app onto your phone. Feel free to wander through the museum; you'll see celebrated pieces like the Venus de Milo or the Great Sphinx, but there are also lesser-known works around each corner that will surprise and delight you.
