"Mona Lisa's smile" Louvre Tip by Arial_27
Louvre, Paris: 24 reviews and 26 photos
Everyone who visits the Louvre generally wants to get a good look at the Mona Lisa by DaVinci - especially now with all the publicity of the book and the motion picture "Mona Lisa's Smile" and the "Da Vinci Code." When you go see it, there will be a HUGE crowd infront of it and you won't even be able to get very close because there's lots of glass over top of it and ropping around.
Unique Suggestions: Not to say at all that its not worth going to; but just make sure to set aside 15-20 minutes just for that painting because it might be a while before you make your way to the front of a crowd where you're actually close enough to even see it. Also, if you take a picture, it probably won't turn out. I think the glass over the painting is there to make flashes, so people can't reproduce it in any way, I'm not sure. If you want a picture of it, take it from a side angle so you won't get the flash. That what we did - but you can see it still turned out incredibly blurry.
Fun Alternatives: If you don't have the time or patience to see the Mona Lisa, the Louvre - not to mention Paris itself, is full of many other interesting artifacts.
