"Most visited art museum in the world!" Musée du Louvre Tip by nyonnetti

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


The famous pyramid and architecture of this former fortress/palace is worth seeing even if you do not want to tour the museum. We went on the first Sunday of the month, thus the admission was free. There was a very long line but it moved quickly. The museum is too large to do in one day. We picked a couple of sections to focus on-what was interesting to us. We focused on the Italian paintings, including the Mona Lisa of course. We went through the Greek, Etruscan, and Roman Antiquities, such as the Venus d’ Milo and Nike of Samothrace. We also went through the Egyptian Antiquities and finally we visited Medieval Louvre- seeing the original fortress underground.
