Louvre, Paris: 796 reviews and 1,585 photos
Before photography painting was the way that the rich and famous had to record themselves and their lifestyles. The French paintings galleries in the Sully wing are well worth your time.
Here we have a few famous French kings, from Francois Ier [a great patron of the arts who reigned from 1515 - 1547] to Louis XIII whose reign from 1610 - 1643 preceded that of the Sun King, Louis XIV.
Directions: Métro: Palais Royal-Musée du Louvre
