Inside the Louvre

The Louvre Museum is one of the most famous and busiest museums in the world. It features tens of thousands of artwork in such stunning interiors that you can easily spend three hours inside without getting bored. Every visitor to Paris should have this on their list and rent those slick multimedia guides to give you a richer experience of the work exhibited.
