"The Louvre" Musée du Louvre Tip by larsy

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

 
 

It houses the greatest piece art hype in the world, the Mona Lisa. It also has some actually interesting pieces like the life size portrait of Napoleons corination. IM Pei'd pyramid is also worth going for, there are also 4 secondary pyramids around the building, I think this is the only inverted one. I was quite surprised to find out it turns into a Benneton and a Virgin Megastore once you exit.

Address: 99 rue de Rivoli, 75058 Paris,
