We spent all of today at The Louvre. Fortunately, the queue to get in was short, probably because of the time of year. It is impossible to cover this in one day so we decided to get visual bites of five of the ten collections - paintings, Egyptian antiques, artifacts, sculptures, and Greek, Etruscan and Roman antiques. We saw the megastar of the museum first - need I say her name? That famous work of art by Da Vinci. It's true what people say - Mona Lisa's gaze follows you everywhere.
In the same room was the Last Supper, a huge piece of art. And of course, we also saw La Venus de Milo - another museum celebrity. There's not much I can really say about our short vist to The Louvre - it really is something that if you haven't already, you need to experience yourself to truly appreciate the magnificence of the place. We really only just scratched the surface and were in awe of what we saw.
After leaving The Louvre, we went for a stroll before jumping back on the hop on/hop off tour bus (with the two-day pass we had purchased yesterday).
Along the way we came across Foucher Chocolat shop and could not resist temptation, coming back out of the shop with some handmade chocolates - tres bon!
We topped the day off with a sumptuous three-course dinner at a restaurant called Chez Clement, all for a reasonable price as they were offering a special deal which included entree, main, dessert & a glass of wine (very useful when on Kiwi dollars!).
