We didn’t have to wait very long at all, even for the Mona Lisa. There are not enough signs ( incl. exit) to know where you need to go. DO NOT RENT THE AUDIO GUIDE. It is a big waste of money and several people felt that way. Even the employees didn’t like them and couldn’t explain them.

It was a really hot day and we were fortunate that we were able to skip a lot of the queues. We went in and saw the Mona Lisa and other paintings. There was a very long queue to see the Mona Lisa up close. Most of the paintings we saw were portrait. Gift shop was there as well as auditorium and other shops near exit.

I wouldn't go to the Louvre without buying tickets first as the wait without the ticket would of been over an hour easily, Maybe 2. With the Pre-purchased ticket got in within 15 minutes of waiting in line. Inside the Louvre was super crowded. It was in the middle of summer though and there is so much more in there to see apart from the Mona Lisa
