The Louvre

We arrived at the Louvre Museum around 8:30 and we stayed until just after 1:00. The Louvre is filled with an astonishing amount of artwork which ranges from all different types, such as clay pottery, paintings, artifacts from ancient cultures such as the Egyptians and many more that it's not possible to see all of it, even in a lifetime. 

Despite that fact I still enjoyed my visit there and got to see a good amount of what the Louvre has to offer.

Some of the more noteworthy pieces we saw include the Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, Winged Victory of Samothrace, The Coronation of Napoleon, and others. I also really enjoyed seeing the Egyptian Artifacts and the tomb of Pharaoh Merenptah.
