The Louvre!!

Chops and I decided to go to the Louvre our second to last day in Paris because we knew this would require a lot of walking! Once we made it to the opening gates of the museum we were, like everyone else, truly blown away. Not only because I felt like I was in the Davinci Code, but also because it was much larger than I had imagined.

You enter the museum through the glass pyramid, which takes you below the ground. After purchasing tickets you can choose one of four wings to explore. We spent most of our time in the statues and biblical paintings of the 16th century. And of course we checked out the Mona Lisa and the recreation of Napoleon Bonaparte’s castle. The pictures below don’t do it justice so check out the website to see all the art the Louvre has on display.
