Travel Tip - Visiting the Louvre
Now that the Writer and the Wanderer is back in swing, I'm going to include travel tips from time to time. Here's one that came from some Parisian friends. Never go to the Louvre during the day. Tourists are everywhere. It's impossible. The best time is after 4pm when the tour buses leave or, better still, go during evening hours. Very few tours if any and you'll have the place almost to yourselves. This applies to all Paris museums which are often hideously overcrowded. For good reasons, of course.
