Cheap hotels near Musée du Louvre in Paris, France

Undoubtedly the most celebrated museum in Paris, the Louvre is also the most visited art museum in the world, visited by more than eight million people a year.

The Louvre is located in the heart of the 1st arrondissement on the Right Bank, inside the former royal palaces that date back to the 12th century. When Louis XIV moved the royal family to Versailles in 1682, the former palace held the royal collection. It wasn’t until after the French Revolution, however, that the Louvre opened as a museum to the public, and its collection has grown enormously since then.

The museum is open every day of the week, except Tuesday. Find more information, including ticket prices, on the Louvre’s website.

Cheapo tip: The museum is free on the first Sunday of the month, although, unsurprisingly, it gets very busy. Come early or late--but avoid the mid-afternoon crush. Read our guide to visiting the Louvre for more information.
