|The grand lady of the museum|
|Intricate details all done by hand|
I am a bit ashamed to admit that prior to my visit, I never understood what all the fuss over the Louvre was about. After all, all of the great world capitols have famous museums that house impressive masterpieces. And many of these museums are located in impressive buildings. But having been there, I now understand. It is the combination of all of these factors that makes the Louvre so impressive and grand. I now understand why this museum is on every Parisian travel itinerary and listed as a must see on travel sites. It really is a must see. I know I only saw a small dose of what the museum has to offer but I also know that I will be back. Having received a small taste of what it offers how can I not return?
