Paris, France An Evening at the Louvre Mini Guide by Tara Anbudaiyan

Specifically planned for the Wednesday or Friday of your Paris visit, this mini-guide will provide an enchanting evening at this world-class museum without the usual crowds.

 
While you can visit the Louvre any day (except Tuesdays), the crowds thin considerably on Wednesdays and Fridays when it's open until 9:45pm. One could spend eons viewing all of the artwork, but you can see highlights in about three hours, which many guidebooks will outline for you. Too imposing? Consider one of several guided tours from Context Travel, which last 2.5-3 hours. The Mona Lisa is always crowded, but there are many rooms which you may have to yourself. Entry included in the Paris Museum Pass. Photo credit: Britchi Mirela The Louvre or the Louvre Museum ( French ) is one of the world's largest museums and a historic monument in Paris, France.
