Story behind the photo - Paris


The tour my friends and I did when we first arrived in Europe took us through 8 countries in 3 weeks. The first stop was Paris, where we had a day to ourselves to explore the city. This photo was taken inside the Louvre.......an amazing museum. We only had enough time to see the Venus de Milo and Mona Lisa, this photo of part of the ceiling was snapped as we power-walked our way between the two pieces of art we had come to see.

A word of advice if you are ever visiting.....pick and choose what you want to see. And get a map. (even with the map, be prepared to get a bit lost)

  1. You paid money to see just 2 things? Or is the Louvre free? Just curious.

  2. you have to pay to go into the permanent collections. I got in for free the first time I went, but my friends had to pay.
