Musée du Louvre

The Louvre was gigantic. There are tons of things to be seen, so we can't upload pictures of everything we saw, and it would have taken us days and days just to pass through all of its exhibits entirely. We saw ancient Greek, Roman, and Egyptian art, as well as the famous La Joconde - otherwise known as the Mona Lisa. We couldn't see nearly as much of the Louvre as we would have liked, but it was fantastic, all the same!

The outside of the Louvre! The pyramids were controversial when they were first built. 

The inside of the Louvre is as much a work of art as the oeuvres within!
