"Huge and Impressive" Musée du Louvre Tip by solopes

Musée du Louvre, Paris: 795 reviews and 1,577 photos

by solopes

Once again I got no time (nor mood) to enter the Louvre. I still am one of the few that went several times to Paris without standing some seconds in front of that small picture of an ugly lady that someone decided to consider "THE" masterpiece.

I didn't also have time to browse the thousands of other artworks, searching for the originals of the known reproductions that fill our memories. I only had time to admire the wonderful palace and gardens, where the flocks merge to enter.

Maybe the Louvre is the center of the world. But, after visiting it, what will be the excuse to return to Paris again and again?

I need to go back to Paris to see the Louvre, but I must confess that it frightens me - time is always short to Paris, and spending most of it to see what has already been seen in all kind of pictures, movies...
