Info about Louvre, Paris
With over 5,000 masterpieces on display the Louvre isn't just a museum but a unique destination where one can stop and savor art. One day simply isn't enough and multiple visits are recommended for anyone who can't get their fill of painting and sculpture. Seeing it all is impossible but you can choose your own itinerary from the many different sections such as Western art during the Middle Ages byway of the 18th century or you can opt for the galleries dedicated to ancient art and Islamic works. The museum is open everyday except Thursday and full price tickets are 8.50. Staying in a Louvre B&B means experiencing the heart of the city and being near its most important monuments. Originally the Louvre was a fortress built to protect the area north of the Seine. Many modifications were made over the years. The latest of these was the highly controversial pyramids in front of the museum's main entrance. They are perfectly transparent and invisible from the museum's interior.
