I can hardly believe it’s already been half a month since Adam and I were in Paris and London! Today I am really excited to share my favorite pieces from the Louvre.
The afternoon we spent in the museum was the highlight of the entire trip for both Adam and I. We roamed the halls for about five hours before they kicked us out for a private event. I’d love to go back some day!
Here are some of my favorites….
Statue of Nike
Venus de Milo, Helenistic era (330-30 BC)
Standing on the head of Medusa
The face of Medusa is actually HORRIFIC. I have a close up of it if anyone is dying to see… it’ll give you nightmares!
Mars et Venus.
Gorgeous, amazing, breath taking ceilings.
A Ninja Turtle you might know…
Crown of Louis XV and Charlemagne.
Inside the Ancient Egyptian Exhibit.
Surviving animal mummies.
We saw many statues of Bastet (the cat goddess), but they were all behind class enclosures so I don’t have any good pictures. Cecil was disappointed that I didn’t get any good ones.
Notably missing from this post is the Mona Lisa which we did make a point to go and see. I was surprised with how small she is! I took a picture but she is also behind a class case and you can’t get very close, so it’s not a very good picture. Very glad we got to see it in person though!
I took so many pictures at The Louvre and have so many favorites I could easily add 100 pictures to this post, but I’ll stop here … for now : ).
I hope you have a great day!
If you missed it you can read about Day 1 in Paris here.
I’ll be back to running posts tomorrow!
Have you ever been to The Louvre? What is your favorite museum? Any cool museums local to you?
– I love science museums!
