A 15-minute metro ride away, the largest museum on the planet invites you to take a journey through civilisations. The Louvre brings together hundreds of thousands of works from all over the world, from the Egyptian and Greco-Roman periods to modern times, via medieval Europe and Islamic arts. Since its opening in 1793, the Mona Lisa, the Seated Scribe and the Venus de Milo have fascinated the world.
Just past the Place de la Concorde, the famous pyramid welcomes you into the majestic courtyard, where the view down the “axe historique” to the Arc de Triomphe deserves some pictures.
Fans can spend several days exploring its 72,735 m² of exhibitions. If time is lacking, the 8 departments of the museum mean you can choose what suits you. Since 2000, the arts of Africa, Asia, Oceania and the Americas are also represented.
