The Louvre is a “super museum” that stands among the British Museum in London and the Met in New York as one of the three greatest art museums in the world. The Louvre has an enormous collection of more than 400,000 pieces and exhibits that span a period of more than 1,500 years. There are collections of works from the ancient Greek, Roman and Egyptian civilizations, including da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa”, Antioch’s “Venus de Milo”, and “Winged Victory of Samothrace”, dubbed the “three treasures” of the museum. The famous films “Phantom of the Louvre” and “The Da Vinci Code” were also filmed here.
The Louvre lies on the right bank of the Seine River from east to west, both sides of which are 690 meters long. The whole building is magnificent and magnificent. The pyramid building on the square in front of the palace is a new entrance for the modern reconstruction of the Louvre Museum. This is the masterpiece of Chinese architect Du Yiming. With such outstanding design, it has increased the service space and facilities of the Louvre Museum, optimized the tourists'visiting routes, and at the same time, the pyramid has added a new dazzling glory to the Louvre Museum. New landmarks in Paris. One of the treasures of the town hall is Broken Arm Venus. This is the world's well-known statue of the goddess of beautiful young women. Marble sculptures from ancient Greece are well proportioned and handsome. Although the right arm is incomplete, they still show the unique curvilinear beauty of women, which is graceful and charming. The Broken Arm Venus has shocked the whole world with its unique charm. Mona Lisa's smile is the second treasure of the town hall. This is Leonardo Da Vinci's masterpiece in 1503. The paintings are embedded in the walls of the hall in the middle of the second floor, which is obviously specially protected. Through the glass cover, you can clearly see this world-famous work. Leonardo Da Vinci described the inner of the characters through various pen strokes, making the Mona Lisa's smile seem subtle and unpredictable. The charming dream-like smile is called "mysterious smile" by many art historians. What's more wonderful is that no matter what angle you look at it, her gentle eyes always look at you with a smile, vivid and unusual, as if she were right beside you. The third treasure of the town hall is the statue of the goddess of victory. It is also a masterpiece of ancient Greek sculpture. Although the head and arms of the statue have been lost, it has not affected her artistic value at all. From any angle, viewers can see and feel the ambition of the Victory Goddess to fly. It is inconceivable that the nameless artists in ancient Greece carved the goddess'skirts as thin as cicada wings on marble. The clothes reveal the full and elastic body of the goddess. The texture of the dress and the sculpture of the pleats are amazing. There are countless art treasures in the Louvre, each of which has a very high artistic value. A bottle of sculpture can see the slightly uplifted meridians under the skin. A healthy and beautiful body makes people admire from the bottom of their hearts. An oil painting can make people feel the historical scenes, and a deep vision makes people think deeply.
The Louvre, the place where most famous paintings and works of art are collected in France, feels that the square on the ground of the Louvre is not actually big enough to be photographed, but it still has a magnificent and shocking feeling. The Louvre is really big and it is not enough to visit all the exhibition areas in one day. Maybe we don't know the art, browse in a hurry, watch the flowers, find three treasures of the Louvre's Town store and leave. How long does it take to visit? It's different opinions. It's hard to fix it. If you like it, you can feel it if you don't like it. There's food in the palace, but you don't have many choices. You can consider preparing your own delicacies to visit again. It is suggested that you can buy a joint ticket to the Paris Museum, the Louvre, the Osai Museum and so on.
There are a lot of information about the Louvre on the Internet. It's easy to find them by yourself, so I won't move them. The greatest advantage of free travel is that we can freely control our time in each scenic spot. On our way to Europe, we meet some Chinese tourists who are on tour. They say that tour guides can only let them watch in the Louvre for an hour and a half or for a maximum of two hours. And we stayed in it for six hours, but we didn't finish looking at the collection in it yet! ___________ Besides the works collected in the museum, the Louvre is a large and beautifully constructed palace. It takes a lot of time and effort to visit the maze-like Palace itself.
From October to February next year, the first Sunday of each month is free. The treasures of the world! What is more remarkable than the Louvre? Architecture, painting, sculpture, the crown of human civilization.
The treasure house of world art came last summer. There are a lot of people in the queue. There are a lot of Chinese people... There are many masterpieces in the textbooks of my childhood, such as the Mona Lisa, the Naked Male Statue of David, Venus, and the meditative statue in the Star Master movie. It's really big. In addition to these European works of art, there are many other works of art that were brought to Africa and Asia during the French colonial period. It's worth a visit.
Oh the Louvre! I sigh because I love this place and yet I don't love this place. The art, the history, the culture, there is no better place to be for all of that. Yet, there's never enough time or energy to see it all, and it's always crowded so start early and plan to stay the whole day. Entrance is 15€. I highly recommend getting the audio guide (it takes a while to learn how to use it so be patient). Once inside, rush to the Mona Lisa. If you go to the Louvre and you don't see the Mona Lisa, don't tell anybody that you went. After you get your glimpse of her smile, make sure you make a list of the other highlights you want to see. Start with the most important to you and work your way down. The museum is very wheelchair friendly. If you're party has someone that could benefit from using a wheelchair, don't hesitate to ask the visitor center for one. There are also free lockers available to everyone on a first come first serve basis.
Absolutely gorgeous and an enormous museum inside and out. It is an architectural marvel and an amazing piece of history in of itself - one of my favorite museums in the world.Some of the world's most famous artwork and sculptures are here (eg, Mona Lisa). You can pretty much spend half a day (or more here) - expect a lot of walking so wear comfortable shoes. The 5EUR audio guides are worth it to learn about the artwork although be forewarned / they are horribly designed and took us 20 minutes to figure out how to use it.
You can't go to Paris and not hit up the Louvre as one of your destinations. It just way to monumental and internationally recognized to not say you've been here! You've seen the Mona Lisa.Not going to lie, the Mona Lisa is very anti-climactic. You'll see for yourself.Even if you visit the tip of the Lourve it is something! It's such a beautiful setting. I think I spent more time taking pictures at the tip than within the museum.It's definitely a full day event unless you speed through all the rooms.At least you should go just to say:" I went to Paris and saw the famous Lourve!"Highly recommend going at night!
Haven for art and history enthusiasts. Buy your tickets online and reserve prior entrance! I'm sure it's always crowded in and outside. So get there early. They open at 9 am, it's your best interests to be there at 8:30 or 8:45 to stay in line. Sometimes their security is unorganized. Try to stay positive and embrace the view around you. Don't push and rush everyone before you to get in. Guess what else is inside? More people.
The world's most well known museum! Be prepare for the crowd, especially insane around the Mona Lisa! Throughly enjoyed the Italian and French paintings, will need to revisit for the rest of the museum! 5 hours does not begin to describe the time you'll need for the Louvre! Perhaps weeks!
