Day Seven: The Louvre

Out of everything we saw and did in Paris, visiting the Louvre was my favorite thing hands down.  It's absolutely massive, and there's so much to see that it's actually overwelming!  It's impossible to see everything in one day.... you'd probably need to devote an entire three months or so for that.  The museum itself & the courtyard are stunning, though it can be super busy.  If you're thinking of going, i'd recommend going later in the evening until close to avoid the crowds.  I didn't go during the day (went to Versailles instead), but opted to go later and i'm glad i did.  It was charming & peaceful, and easier to get photos without photobombers ruining the shots. :)
Since this was the last day/night out in Paris, it was a lovely end to the trip!

If i ever go back to Paris, exploring the Louvre more would be at the top of my to-do list. ♥
This is the last blog post on my trip to England & France. :(  Hope you enjoyed this mini-series, if you want to see photos and such from the rest of the trip, links are at the bottom of this post!

The Louvre courtyard by day.
And by evening.
Gorgeous sculptures in the Sully Wing.
Absolutely stunning Napoleon's Apartments in the Richelieu Wing - probably my favorite thing ever.
Staircases, tapestries, and bits & bobs.
Mona Lisa in the Denon Wing.
