Porte des Lions entrance at the Louvre?

Jump to last reply

I'm debating which entrance to use when we visit the Louvre next week.

We will be going on Monday afternoon, arriving no sooner than 2:30pm. We won't have a Museum Pass as we will only be visiting Louvre.

Will lines be horrendous at the Pyramid entrance at that time of day?

We are taking a bus to the Louvre, and the stop is just off Pont Neuf, so the Pyramid entrance is the closest.

The Louvre's website states that individuals can enter via the Porte des Lions entrance. Has anyone tried that? I don't want to walk all the way there to find out it's reserved for special groups only.
