Travel to France - The Louvre

No visit to Paris is complete without seeing the Louvre.

A visit to the Louvre in Paris could be a vacation all in itself. One could spend days, if not weeks, walking though the vast halls of the museum soaking in the thousands of years of the amazing art that resides within its walls.

The collection of art and antiquities in the Louvre are divided into 7 departments: Oriental Antiquities and Islamic Art; Egyptian Antiquities; Etruscan and Roman

Antiquities; Objects d’art; Sculpture; Graphic Arts; and Paintings.

It could take a half a day just to walk the total area the Louvre covers, and that would be without looking at the art. So one should consider spending two or three half days to truly appreciate the museum and its treasures.
