The Louvre always fascinated me from its beautiful triangle fixture. I was intrigued at what all was in store inside. The museum had a long line entrance at the front, but what most people don’t know is that there is a hidden underground entrance near the triangle. I followed the stairway down and was awaited without a single line to wait in. Best hidden passageway ever!

Inside, the triangle from the outside inverted inward to make a triangle inside as well. The lights hitting off it were stunning. I couldn’t wait to see what else was in this place besides the Mona Lisa.

The Louvre was huge and it had rooms upon rooms of artwork and sculptures.

Since we had very little time, Shiran and I tried to figure out what we wanted to see the most. We narrowed it down to the Mona Lisa, Egyptian art and Renaissance art. Getting around to all these exhibits proved harder though since the place was so large. We found ourselves getting lost in the corridors and asking for help numerous times. Eventually we found everything we were looking for. From the little that we saw, we both knew that we could spend an entire day in there.

There was so much pretty artwork and it was even more awesome knowing how old some of this stuff was. The best of the best was in this place. I can’t wait to go back.

*Thank you Shiran for accompanying me on this adventure

WOULD I DO IT AGAIN?: This place was so beautiful. There was so much stuff that it was impossible for me to see it all in the time I had. I will be going back.

Contiki Travel is HIGHLY recommended. I would do this all over again a million times. www.contiki.com
