Louvre Museum , Paris - Photos

Photos taken during the trip to the Louvre Museum in Paris. Louvre is one of the largest and famous museums in the world and could be daunting for visitors due to its sheer size. If you were to spend 10 minutes looking at each artifact, it would take you months to see the museum completely.

I spent more than six hours at Louvre - got " lost" many times and also lost 3 kgs in the process ! The audio guide ( English) was very helpful in understanding the history and significance of most well known artifacts there.

Due to the limited time that I had, I did a very " touristy" short trip but got to see some of the most famous artifacts - Monalisa, Code of Hammurabi, Nike statue, Venus De Milo, Seated scribe, Dying slave, Madonna and Child.
