Paris For The Day, The Louvre

Goukaseishi, Paris

Later on in the day we visited The Louvre when it was quieter. The Louvre is one of the main places I have wanted to visit, as it is world famous.

It was still busy, but people outside took pictures on these sort of stones..to give the illusion of them touching the top of the pyramid.

When walking in we didn’t know where to get tickets, but on entering you will notice many ticket booths.

The area was busy, even at 4ish when we entered. (The Louvre closes around 5:30/6?).

We made our way up the stairs, to one of the many areas. I wanted to see the world famous Mona Lisa, which is easy to find with the signs from entering the Denon area.

The architecture was cool inside.

The hallway full of paintings and packed full of people.

and….The Mona Lisa….

as you can see it was busy with people trying to take the same picture.

the Mona Lisa is smaller then you would think, and it’s behind glass, so getting a good picture is impossible.

In another room I noticed this painting on the ceiling which caught my eye. With many of the rooms like this, if i had longer I would of spent more time looking at all the detail in the art pieces in this museum.

On the way out I noticed many different sculptures, although I was unable to tell the name of many of the paintings/sculptures as they were in French.

We left the Louvre and made our way to the metro station, where I saw people still trying to get into the museum…15 minutes before closing time??!?

I loved this which I noticed at the end of .
