The Louvre

Heading into the Louvre

Heading into the Louvre

It’s a little embarrassing, but after four trips to Paris we finally made it to the Louvre.  We got up a little early to beat the Sunday morning crowd and it was well worth it, we walked right in.  One thing that had kept us away was the idea of standing in a line for an hour to get it in.  We spent all of our time in the Denon wing, where the Mona Lisa is housed behind layers of bulletproof glass.

The Louvre itself is just as beautiful as the artwork on the walls.
