"The Louvre. I know, I know. ..." Musée du Louvre Tip by Kindberg37

Musée du Louvre, Paris: 796 reviews and 1,585 photos

 
 

The Louvre. I know, I know. It's just about the most well-known place in the world. And it is almost a tourist trap. There is just so much here that it's hard to find what you want to see. But there are some amazing art pieces in here. And I'm not even a huge fan of sculpture, but in this museum I found pieces that have become my favorite of all art. So it is definetly worth the visit.
Some of the pieces I recommend actively searching out are Michaelangelo's slaves. While in that room look around, because the entire room is filled with great pieces.

The Venus de Milo is also in the museum, and is great to see.
