What to expect at the Louvre?
If we had to choose the most visited museum in the world, it would definitely be the Louvre in Paris. Opened in 1793, the iconic gallery receives more than 8 million visitors a year, who come to admire the more than 35,000 works of art inside.
The Musée du Louvre is located in the Louvre Palace, whose 12th century architecture contrasts magnificently with the glass pyramid built there in 1989, which has become one of its symbols.
Have you always dreamed of seeing the Mona Lisa up close? Discover Leonardo da Vinci’s most famous painting alongside the rest of the masterpieces which fill the largest art museum in the world. An unmissable visit!
