I've toured many outstanding art museums, but this one takes the cake. The Louvre is the world's greatest. It has more examples of all kinds of art than any other museum. Its collection of Renaissance art is unrivalled. This includes "La Jaconde", known in English as the Mona Lisa. You need to allow at least several hours to see this.
