This is the third in our four-part Paris series, and I can't think of a better way to start the new week than with a tour through the Louvre.
This medieval fortress turned Neo-baroque palace is now home to some of the world's finest treasures.
Let's start in the Denon wing so we can beat the crowds to one of the museum's most heavily visited attractions--Da Vinci's Mona Lisa. Snap a quick picture while she smiles for the camera!
Now we're ready to stroll through the sprawling galleries of classical French and Spanish paintings,
and hear the stories told by ancient Greek and Roman sculptures.
As we head over to the Near Eastern Antiques in the Richelieu wing, let's pause to take in the exquisite interior designs.
We'll admire the craftsmanship of the ancient Mesopotamians,
and turn the corner to discover the code of Hammurabi.
Entering the atrium we'll witness ancient dramas unfold,
and in the Sully wing we'll marvel at the mysteries of antiquity.
The treasures we'll discover
will make our hearts dance,
and remind us to celebrate the art of living every chance we get.
Thank you for joining me on this tour of the Louvre! I'll see you next week for the forth and final look into "la vie en rose" in Paris!
