The Louvre Pyramid

The Gold room

The Louvre is one of the most famous museums it is filled with treasures from around the world.

The top photo shows the Crystal Pyramid which is also the entrance.

The side photo shows the Gold room The museum is too large to see in one day you are better making several visits.

You can get a pass to the museum. It is best to buy a ticket in advance. There can be long queues, you can get a pass for several tourist sites on one pass and save money.

The museum is easy to reach via the metro get off at the Palais Royal or Louvre Rivoli stations. The museum is on 99 rue de Rivoli 75058

My Daughter`s visit to the Louvre museum in Paris

Louvremusem Paris

The Louvre in Paris, France is one of the most beautiful museums in the world.

I had the pleasure of visiting it last year on a trip to France. The Louvre is easily accessible by the subway, although taking a taxi is probably more comfortable.

I went to see the museum during the month of July. I do not recommend this time of year due to the excessive heat. Very rarely will there be any air conditioning on the ride there and especially once you enter the museum. The only air conditioned areas are the ones with the paintings, not the sculptures.

Dress for heat and bring a sweater. Also wear comfortable shoes because you will be doing a lot of walking. I had to walk at least ¾ of a mile to get to the Mona Lisa.

Due to the Mona Lisa's popularity, I recommend getting there early. There is usually a mob of people in front of the painting with two armed guards on either side.

It makes it very difficult to see. There is also a lot of people waiting to get into the museum.

I went in the middle of the day and there was a line halfway around the building. You will have to go through security before you enter the museum, so if you are bringing children, bring a toy for them to play with.

There are many different parts to the museum so take a lot of film or extra batteries for your camera.

If you plan to spend the whole day there I would pack a lunch. There are places to eat in and around the Louvre but I found them expensive.

I packed bottled water for my boyfriend and I, a few sandwiches, snack and a cold pack. I was able to fit it in a backpack so lugging it around was not too bad.

The best tip of all is to just enjoy. Relax and take in the beauty of what you see. It is worth it.


Just an update

It as been about 5 years since we last visited the Louvre.This time we visited in December which is a better time to go no queue.

This large 2-bedroom apartment is a delight to come home to after a long days sightseeing and window shopping. Located on the first floor (2nd floor for North Americans), with a lift, the apartment overlooks rue Custine, one of the most interesting street in Paris to walk through.

Though facing the street, the double-glazed windows give you excellent insulation against any daily passerby.

The apartment has been tastefully decorated in vibrant colors, which catch the natural light streaming into the apartment. As the view is not obstructed closely by another building in front, you benefit from the sunlight and can enjoy your morning breakfast a the wooden dinning table which extends to seat 6.
