On Friday we decided to spend the day at the Louvre. In the past, we kind of rush through the three wings, however, this time we wanted to concentrate on the Denon wing. One of the most famous works here is the Mona Lisa painted by Leonardo da Vinci. This is a photo of Mike, Elaine and Mona Lisa.
“Winged Victory of Samothrace” also known as the “Nike of Samothrace,” one of the most famous sculptures in the world, sits in its place of importance at the top of the staircase. The 2nd century BC marble sculpture of Nike the Greek goddess has been at the Louvre since 1884.
I was in awe just walking from room to room inside the Louvre. It is really an immense, beautiful and amazing place.
It turned out to be such a damp, cold afternoon that we decided to take a taxi back to the apartment. From the back seat of the taxi I took this photo of the Eiffel Tower. To enlarge any photo just click on it.
