Yup, you read that right. Johnny and I spent 9 hours in Le Louvre (with a break for a long lunch and shopping in the Carrousel du Louvre). While Musée d’Orsay is still my favorite, no trip to Paris is complete without a trip to the most famous museum in the world.
And even if you only have a few hours to spend to see the famous things (Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, Winged Victory of Samothrace, the whole Egypt wing), make sure to see the Napoleon Apartments. Located in the Richelieu wing, it was hands down my favorite thing in the Louvre. I’m pretty sure Johnny and I spent an hour there alone, gawking at everything. It was breathtaking!
