The number of foreign visitors to The Louvre dropped by 20 percent – to 5.3 million people.

Total attendance at The Musee d’Orsay was down 13 percent – to three million.

The Louvre and Musee d’Orsay were also closed for five days in June because of flooding.

Paris hotel bookings from overseas were down by ten percent in 2016 – according to figures from the Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau.
