The Louvre

The Louvre, or officially Musée du Louvre, is one of the world's largest museums. It is a central landmark of the city and is located on the Right Bank of the Seine in the 1e arrondissement.

Every one visiting Paris comes here. About 10 million every year. It's usually crowded with people. Everywhere.

Nearly 35,000 objects are exhibited over an area of over 60,000 square metres. It takes time and effort to see things. Best to narrow your focus. Select a few things of interest and see them. Or do one section a day. It might take weeks.

And you can always wander around outside. It is an amazing expanse and often filled with humanity, especially on weekends.

A quieter day outside provides a beautiful view of a time standing still. Apart from the pyramid-shaped landing beacons for the UFOs that will surely arrive one day. And then the place will be even more crowded.
