The Louvre - Paris. How to avoid the long lines to get in!

Going to the great museums of Paris usually involves a lot of waiting in long lines to get in and once you are inside you have already spent some of your energy. If you are a group of people more then 10 you can simply make a group booking with the museum but it is rather costly. The best way is to go to buy your ticket at a FNAC store before you go to the Louvre. The FNAC stores are located all over the city but as a tourist it is most likely that you go to Champs Elysées or in the Latin Quarter. You pay about 2 Euros more for the ticket there but you save from 1-2 hours on a busy day at the Louvre waiting in line. To get into the Louvre there is one entrance by the pyramid and one from the shopping center under the Louvre. The entrance to the shopping  center is just by the small Arch of Triumph. If you do not have a ticker you have to wait in a long line to get through security checks but with a ticket you can get into a VIP line. Then when you are inside you have to wait in other lines to buy your tickets before you can enter. With your ticket from the FNAC in hand you can skip all that waiting in line! A suggestion is also to go to a restroom before you go inside the museum as those also have long lines. Now you have energy for the great collection!
