The Louvre

The entrance to The Louvre, taken from a window. I loved seeing the city scape from the window too. Having visited The Louvre twice before I still found there was much to see, it could take weeks to see everything.

A room full of color.
The textures of the building alone are amazing.

The sculptures and lighting in the courtyard were beautiful.

It is exhausting to try to see it all and can only be taken in with several visits. Our main focus this time was Egyptian art, but as you see we did walk through several other areas too.
The Louvre is a "must see" in Paris for anyone on holiday in this beautiful city.
After The Louvre we walked to Angelina's to pick up chocolate to bring home, and
then onto the Mariage Freres for afternoon tea with a friend.
Oh my feet are hurting me just remembering the walking done in Paris.
