"This is the inner courtyard..." Louvre Tip by la_beba

Louvre, Paris: 14 reviews and 16 photos

This is the inner courtyard (Cour Napoléon) at the Louvre museum, a short walk northwest of Ile de la Cité. The famous Louvre pyramid is built of sheet glass supported on a framework of stainless steel tubes. The pyramid vaults over the museum reception area below the surface. The Denon wing of the Louvre looms behind the pyramid. The Eiffel Tower can be seem peeking above the right end of the Denon wing. As an art-lover, I'd say this is a must.... but I did not make it in, oops!!! lines were just too long when we were there..... but if you dont mind the lines and can wait; or there's no lines when you visit.... it's probably a top 10 activity to see in Paris.
