The Louvre, the world’s greatest museum
The largest and most visited museum in the world, the Musée du Louvre is housed in the Louvre Palace. This was the main residence of French royalty until Louis XIV decided to move his household to the Palace of Versailles. This exceptional building is located on the banks of the Seine, and houses an incredible collection of artefacts ranging from prehistory through classical antiquity, the Middle Ages and up to modern times. With the famous central glass pyramid pointing proudly towards the sky in the main courtyard, the Louvre Museum is an inexhaustible source of inspiration, framed by the Rue de Rivoli and the Jardin des Tuileries and dominating the centre of the capital.
A museum to amaze you
The impressive size of the building, the extreme richness of the collections… Even if you’ve visited a hundred times before, the Louvre Museum always offers fresh surprises. But it’s perhaps the greatest treasures that are the biggest attraction. This is the home of the Mona Lisa, the famous painting that has been in the museum’s collection since 1802. Not to spoil the suspense, but you will undoubtedly be surprised by its size. The Louvre also holds such breath-taking works as The Battle of David and Goliath and the delightfully surprising statues on display in the Salle des Caryatides.
For your stay in Paris, opt for an elegant and central hotel. The Hotel d'Angleterre is just a few minutes' walk from the Louvre Museum, in the chic, upscale and creatively vibrant Saint-Germain-des-Prés district in the heart of the capital.
