Weekly Photo Challenge: I’d Rather Be…

Venus de Milo
Location: The Louvre, Paris, France

 
On our third day in Paris, we went to Musée du Louvre (The Louvre) located on the right side of the Seine river.

It’s one of the largest museums in the world with an area over 650,000 square feet. Its 300 rooms have 35,000 exhibits on display from prehistoric times to the 21st century. These include the Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, Code of Hummurabi, and Winged Victory.

The Louvre Crowd

 
The lines were long and too crowded to offer a moment for reflection and even take good pictures, but there was no other place I’d rather be especially on a rainy day.

Our guide said it would be impossible to cover everything in one visit. The best strategy then was to prioritize what you wanted to see and plan on coming back someday.
