The skip the line for Feb is not really necessary. But a must to do in Paris esp if travel with kids
It was very convenient to have these tickets purchased in advance. We visited the Louvre on Easter which was a very busy day! You need to pick up the tickets at their office, about a block away, prior to entering the museum. Once we had our tickets, we were able to walk right in to the Louvre.
I give the Louvre five starts. I give Viator 2. Because on the second sheet of the printout it informs you you have to walk a few blocks from the Louvre to pick up your ticket. I did not know this and I made it all the way into the Louvre and started to go into the gallery of my choice and was turned away because they do not accept paper vouchers. I had to go all the way back out and figure out how to get to the ticket office because I do not use my internet while traveling internationally unless I'm on wifi. I had no reliable map. So I wasted at least an hour having to do this. I'm not sure if all online ticket purchases for the Louvre are this way but it really was a hassle.
It's the Louvre, what more can I say. There is a little cafe by the Mona Lisa by the stairs that you can sit outside and overlook the main entrance while you sit below these massive statues. We did it 25 years ago on our honeymoon and it was just as great this trip! Highly recommend it. The fast pass, it was not all that critical for the day we went, however, I highly recommend fast passing everything - we saved 4.5 hours of wait time at the catacombs and the Eiffel Tower. Money very well spent in that we were able to do multiple attractions in a day vs waiting in line.
It is worth the time to pre-order a voucher to skip the line. This is a very busy museum and line-ups are very long. I would recommend starting in the Richelieu wing sculptures or Napoleon's apartments? and then make your way around to the other wings... after lunching on the terrace overlooking the pyramid. Hint: There is more than one da Vinci in this museum....
skip the line pass anytime you can get it, do it! You do have to go to the tours office first, which we did not realize but it is very close! highly recommend as the line here can be outrageous, especially in bad weather you are waiting outside the entire time
Not waiting in the line helped us see more of the Museum! It was a great investment
