Discover The Louvre

With its famous pyramid and its miles of galleries, the largest museum in the world will never cease to amaze. For the past few years the museum has been striving to establish a fruitful dialogue between the works and the visitor from the moment they enterthe museum through the vast well of light that is the pyramid. Consequently, an introductory tour is now available, and clearer descriptions of many of the works have been put in place. The magic can only get better!
