The Louvre is raising ticket prices.

Arts and EntertainmentThe Louvre is raising ticket prices.

The Louvre Museum said it would raise its basic ticket price to 22 euros from 17 euros beginning next month in the latest sign that visitors may face higher costs ahead of the Summer Olympics in Paris. The Louvre, which expects to have welcomed nearly 9 million visitors by the end of the year, said that it would be raising its prices by 30 percent in order to offset rising energy costs. The increase wasn't directly related to the Paris Summer Olympics, but was a sign of rising prices across the French capital as it prepares to host nearly 10 million people in town for the Games. During the Summer Olympics, the agency was considering doubling the price of a Metro ride to 4 from 2.10 in order to cover increased costs.
