Louvres Museum

Finding Mona Lisa

On our 2nd day in Paris we walked the short distance between the hotel to the Metro station, and headed for the Louvre Museum.

On the way we saw the office of the French Tourism office. We went in and bought a 3 day Paris pass which gave us entry to a series of Museums, castles and other attractions.

We entered by the large pyramid and accessed the main hallway of the museum.

When entering all Parisian monuments or museums, your bag is scanned just like in airports.

We wandered around the many alleys stacked with hundreds of "Objets d'art" (Art pieces)

We were by then hungry so, we got out and went hunting for food.
