On the third day in Paris, we went to visit The Louvre. Louvre is one of the largest palaces in the world. It’s the former residence of former kings of France. It’s also the world most visited museum.
The Paris Pass allows us to skip the lining up as there is a fast track entry with the pass.
Our priority is to check out the Mona Liza first before it gets too crowded. I was surprised how small the painting is.
The next item on our list is The Wedding Feast.
Here are the photos of some of the paintings that we took.
The paintings were mostly Christian based.
Our third priority was to see the Venus de Milo.
Then, we browsed through the Greek section, Panthenon and Egypt section.
The Louvre is very grand. Even the ceiling is elaborately decorated.
We did not spend a lot of time exploring all the exhibits in The Louvre. We spent some time taking photos outside The Louvre.
Sitting by the Grand Bassin Octagonal in the Tuileries Garden.
The Obelisk of Luxor at the center of the Place de la Concorde.
Fountain of River Commerce and Navigation.
A decorative lamb post at the Place de la Concorde.
We had a snack of Choco Banana Crepe from a stall outside The Louvre. It cost Euro 4.
One thing to take note is that if you need to use the washroom, make sure you go to the washroom in the museum before you exit as the washroom outside the museum will cost you Euro 0.70.
