Visited in early June. Weather was very hot and humid. Tourists crowded everywhere in and near the Louvre. The museum is a masterpiece. I wish we could have spent more time actually viewing the art, but the crowds were so thick that we could hardly see anything major. Artwork is tastefully displayed. Several displays were closed for renovation. Get your ticket ahead of time, and breeze through the entry line. Even though Paris is known to have a paucity of public bathrooms, they were pathetic here. Millions of visitors annually, and the biggest bathroom we found was 4 stalls.....lines were always 15-25 minutes, and the stalls weren't always clean. Plan accordingly. There are two restaurants in the lobby - one quick service, the other sit down. The quick service was very busy - again, plain ahead. The biggest criticism I had was the lack of places to sit. Even to admire the art....there were very few benches or chairs. And for an older lady, that was a problem. An enjoyable experience. Next time, I won't go in tourist season, though. It was too crowded to be able to enjoy.
