Situated at the centre of Paris’ first arrondissement, the Louvre Museum is certainly one of the capital’s cultural symbols. It is actually one of the largest museums on a global scale, extending over 60 000 square metres and containing no less than half a million works – including the famous Mona Lisa. It is also the most visited museum in the world, and welcomes between 8 to 10 million visitors each year.
Palais du Louvre in its current form dates from the 16th century: it has undergone extensive renovations (becoming a royal residence rather than the fortress which it was, originally) as well as a fusion with Palais des Tuileries. Its collections increased as years went by; its first exhibitions date back to the end of the 18th century, and the museum was inaugurated in 1793. The famous Louvre Pyramide which currently stands at the centre of Napoleon’s court was built at the end of the 1780s, following the Grand Louvre project.
The Louvre Museum faces Place du Carrousel and Jardin des Tuileries. You can easily get there by car through Quai François Mitterrand as well as Quai des Tuileries, which are connected to the Seine’s other bank by Ponts Arts and Pont du Carrousel. You can also walk to Pont-Neuf and l’île de la Cité, Comédie Française or even Palais Royal within a 10 minute radius around the Louvre.
