Due to Covid-19 pandemic everywhere in Europe nothing will ever be the same again (or at least not immediately).
Cinemas, theatres, museums are gradually adapting to the new security measures.
After three months of complete closure, on 06 July 2020 the Louvre, one of the most important museums in the world and one of the most visited in Paris, reopened.
The closure of the Museum, from March onwards (the longest since the Second World War to date) caused a shortfall of about 40 million euros in revenue.
To enter the museum it will be compulsory to wear a mask and not all collections will be open to the public, especially not those kept in relatively small rooms. About 30% of the museum will be closed. Visitors will not be able to access the cloakrooms and will have to follow an obligatory route (as happens in the Vatican Museums).
From 1 June 2020 the Vatican Museums opened their doors to the public again with reduced opening hours, suspension of the extraordinary opening Sundays, masks obligation and temperature check.
