Paris - The Louvre

Wow! We only had a few hours to enjoy the Louvre museum, but we made great use of our time.

I will let the photos speak for themselves.

Egyptian Art (our favorite part)

Bas Relief

Statues & Sculptures

We did also see the Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo. However, there were so many people thronged around these famous works of art that we did not attempt photos. And, to be perfectly honest, I don't see what makes them so famous. Compared to Bernini? Well, there simply is no comparison for me.

One word of advice: If you ever plan to visit the Louvre, buy your tickets in advance online! It will save you hours of waiting in line. We were lucky to have tickets in hand when we arrived. Yay!

Love to all!!
