With its rich display of culture and stellar collections, the Louvre may be the world's greatest art museum. The former fortress began its career as a public museum in 1793 with 2,500 paintings and now houses some 30,000, covering human civilization from antiquity to the 19th century.

The most famous works from antiquity include the Seated Scribe, the Jewels of Rameses II and the armless duo: the Winged Victory of Samothrace and the Venus de Milo. From the Renaissance, don't miss Michelangelo's Slaves, Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa or the museum's works by Raphael, Botticelli and Titian. French masterpieces from the 19th century include Ingres' La Grande Odalisque, Géricault's The Raft of the Medusa, and the work of David and Delacroix.

With so many masterpieces and galleries open to the public, the Louvre can get incredibly crowded. To avoid queues at the pyramid, buy your ticket in advance or book a skip-the-line ticket.

Practical Info

Located next to the Seine River in central Paris, the Louvre is easy to find. Catch Metro line 1 or 7 to the Palais Royal/Musée du Louvre station.
