    Mañana en el Louvre

    February 25, 2019 in France ⋅ ☀️ 7 °C

    El lunes a la mañana fuimos al museo del Louvre. Hicimos un recorrido que habiamos planeado la noche anterior. El museo es tan grande que es imposible verlo todo, asi que hay que elegir que ver y que no.

    Lo primero que vimos fueron pinturas del renacimiento, entre muchas otras vimos a la famosa Mona Lisa. Despues vimos arte griego y romano, y nos sacamos fotos frente a la Venus de Milo, que nos encanto. Tambien vimos arte del antiguo egipto.

    A la salida, vimos esculturas y pinturas europeas mas recientes, y eso que dejamos 70% del museo sin recorrer.

    Almorzamos en los jardines del museo, y nos fuimos a comprar a Angelina.

    The Louvre

    The Louvre

    Today we started the day walking through our famous neighbourhood of Montemartre and visited the Sacré-Cœur.

    Then we had afternoon reservations for The Louvre, we were pleasantly surprised we got through the line quite quickly. Here we of course saw the Mona Lisa, again we only had a short wait. Another note worthy was The Coronation of Napoleon, a massive floor to roof painting. We found our Louvre trip much more pleasant and less crowded then the Vatican. It was very easy to walk through the exhibitions though most captions were in French so you relied on the Audio Guide. Most of its collection was sponsored by Philanthropists.

    We finished off our night with some amazing Duck with a orange/ sweet & sour sauce. So different but great.
    And of course chocolate Macaroons for dessert.

    The Louvre

    September 20, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    The Louvre is the home of the Mona Lisa, the Venus de Milo, the Wiged Victory of Samothrace and Leonardo da Vinci’s painting of John the Baptist. Most of our viewing has been done over the heads of 500 Chinese tourists. Still, it is wonderful to see the original paintings of works I’ve seen only in books all my life.Read more
