Musée du Louvre is the most visited museum in the world. It exhibits works of art spanning the period from antiquity almost to our time. Before becoming a museum, Louvre used to be a royal palace erected on the foundations of a medieval fortification. Louvre Museum consists of three wings – Denon (next to the Seine River), Richelieu (lining Rue de Rivoli), and Sully (connecting them). There used to be the fourth wing (Tuileries), which was heavily damaged during the Paris Commune (1871) uprising and demolished in the following years. A thorough visit to the museum requires days, if not weeks. Thus, prioritize some of the following sections to cover the majority of museum highlights during a brief visit: - Denon Wing: Greek Antiquities, Roman Antiquities, Sculptures/Europe, Paintings Gallery, and Apollon's Gallery - Sully Wing: Egyptian Antiquities and Near Eastern Antiquities - Richelieu Wing: Marly Court, Puget Court, and Napoleon III Apartments While browsing these sections, don't miss Mona Lisa by da Vinci and The Wedding at Cana by Veronese (Paintings Gallery), The Dying Slave by Michelangelo (Sculptures/Europe), Nike of Samothrace and Venus de Milo (Greek Antiquities), Code of Hammurabi (Near Eastern Antiquities), and Great Sphinx of Tanis (Egyptian Antiquities).
