Skip the Line at the Louvre
TRAVEL TIP: You can skip the long line to buy tickets to the Louvre by entering through the Carrousel Metro station stop. The outside line takes hours to get through (I know from experience), and then you have another line for Security to actually enter the museum. But if you come up through the subway station, you can buy tickets at the gift shop, where there's hardly a line at all. It makes it more fun to look out the windows of the Louvre (as I did here) and watch the seemingly endless line snake around the pyramid.
