Europe, France, Paris

Musée du Louvre

The Louvre is the world’s largest art museum and a central landmark in Paris with 10.2 million visitors a year and 380,000 objects and 35,000 works of art. Many people just attend to see the Mona Lisa, but there is so much more! Because my trip was only a day and there was a lot to see, they only allocated us an hour to visit and explore! I was able to see the Mona Lisa, as well as a lot of other pieces of art. You could spend years there looking at every object!
