Two years ago I had the opportunity to visit the Louvre Museum.
The Louvre is the biggest museum of the world and hold one of the most rich, historic important and vast art pieces ever produced by mankind. Every living artist should visit this place at least once in a lifetime.
A castle turned into a palace turned into a museum, the history of the Louvre blends with the history of Paris, France and Europe.
My wife and I arrived earlier at the Musee du louvre station so we had time to walk through the jardins de tuileries up to the obelisque and a bit of the champs elisées.

If you’re visiting the louvre, I do recommend you go see the Monalisa first. And go as soon as the museum opens because it will be very hard to see it after that. It is very crowded, the picture is protected by a glass and isolation so you can’t see the pictured very close.
