As we said after our 2006 trip to Paris, the Louvre is spectacular in most any measurement of a museum you can imagine.
In the next post, we will begin to take a quick peek at certain areas within the Louvre. We'll only scratch the surface of the museum's contents, but it will give you a flavor of what to expect.
Below is a copy of the brochure they had you when you buy your ticket. It is very helpful and the museum looks very simple to navigate, but don't think you're not going to get lost a time or two! We had to stop and recalcuate our current geographic location a few times!
You may want to take a quick look at the floor plans below so you can keep track of where we are in the next few posts.
