The Louvre

Come to the Louvre

The famous museum in Paris has one of the finest collections of art in the world, with nearly 35,000 artifacts on display. It is a living, breathing humanities lesson. But fame comes with a price – the Louvre welcomes nearly 10 million visitors annually from around the globe, and that number is expected to reach 12 million in the next decade. The entrance lines can be intense, with masses of visitors pushing to get through the doors of the glass pyramid as if the masterpieces are about to vanish into thin air. Thankfully, said masterpieces are spread across 60,000 square meters of display space, so it’s possible to find some breathing room.
