A Day in the Tuileries

Morning

Visiting the Louvre takes planning, and you should get there at least 15 minutes before opening (unless you’ve already bought your ticket). Spend the whole morning and pick up a map as you enter so that you can be sure to see the main highlights. Have a morning coffee in the elegant Richelieu, Denon or Mollien cafés within the museum.

From the Louvre, either visit the Carrousel du Louvre’s underground shops or walk along rue de Rivoli towards place de la Concorde . This end of the street is filled with souvenir shops but avoid the overpriced cafés and turn right to rue Mondavi for a good lunch at Lescure, a little rustic bistro (

  • Closed Sat, Sun

).
Afternoon

After being indoors all morning, get some fresh air in the Jardin des Tuileries then walk down to place de la Madeleine to spend the afternoon browsing and shopping in its many food stores or visit the Art Nouveau Museum. Later, take tea in the restaurant of one of the best shops Hédiard .

If you are on a budget, and plan to visit the Louvre on Wednesday or Friday, reverse this itinerary, as admission is cheaper after 6pm. Late-night opening allows you over three hours in the museum. Remember the Louvre is free to everyone under 18 and anyone under 26 from the EU.
