The Louvre

  • HUGE
  • Incredible
  • Overwhelming
And we only saw about 1/4 of the museum. By the end, my mind was exhausted as well as my legs. We went back to our flat for dinner, cards, & to read books.

Anyway, pictures always explain it better, right? :)

Ancient Rome

Modern Rome

The ridiculous crowd for the over-rated Mona Lisa

The famous/infamous glass pyramid

The straight line view from the Louvre (Arc du Caroussel, Place de la Concorde, Arc de Triomphe [and what you can't see is the Arche de la Defense])

Room commissioned by Catherine de Medici painted by Rubens

These paintings were HUGE!

A monkey, painting a painting... of course!

The inner courtyard

A painting of the Louvre being arranged

I came, I conquered
