So I just spent three weeks in Paris. It was my first time. Beautiful city, and incredible museums. The Beaux Arts and Rococo styles that are pervasive in this city are not my ideal, but I cannot deny it is a magnificent place. I can't wait to go back.
The Louvre was by far the most exciting part of my trip. I had been scared to go to the Louvre, fearing the enormous crowds. Luckily, it is open until 9:45 pm on Wednesdays and Fridays. Wednesdays after 6:00 pm in November seem to be an ideal time to go if you want to look at art. I cannot recommend anything more.
