Highlights
  • This e-ticket gets you in smoothly and quickly, via the beautifully modern glass Pyramid
  • The Louvre's magnificent Classical silhouette is a familiar sight in the center of Paris, but the outside is nothing compared to what's on the inside
  • Of course you'll want to see Mona Lisa's enigmatic smile, but don't neglect at least some of the 35,000 other artistic treasures inside
Description

This e-ticket gets you smoothly into the Louvre, a Grand Old Dame of art museums. The Louvre's collection ranges from Mesopotamian, Egyptian, and Greek antiquities to masterpieces by artists such as da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Rembrandt. With 35,000 artworks it's a big (and worthwhile) commitment.

The Louvre's collection focuses on two important eras in art history; Art and Craftwork from ancient civilizations (especially those that laid the foundation for Western art) and Western European Art from the Middle Ages to 1848 or so (later art can be found at the Musée d’Orsay).

This famous museum began as a palace, bearing the personal art collections of French kings. Art first went on display here under the initiative of the royal academy in 1725 but it wasn't until 1793 - during the French Revolution - that it opened as a public art gallery (not a coincidence).

Before too long the museum's already impressive collection was being bolstered by the spoils of Napoleon’s excursions around Europe.

He transformed the Louvre's art collection into the biggest in the world - though some of that ill-gotten booty has been returned, some of it remains to this day.
