We arrived at the Louvre this morning with the line to buy tickets stretched all the way round the inner courtryard. The wait was over an hour, but thankfully there was no rain. People who buy tickets beforehand can bypass the line and cut ahead. Needless to say, when we made it inside we purchased a four-day Museaum Pass that covers most of the major museums and other attractions in Paris, including Versailles. And we won’t be waiting in any more lines.
