The Louvre has become the biggest and most visited museum in the world. In fact, this museum receives more than 9 million visitors every year and covers more than 60,000 square metres and containing nearly half a million works including the world-renowned Mona Lisa.
Originally built as a fortress in 1190, the Louvre was transformed into a Royal Palace, under the initiative of King Francis I in 1546, to serve as his royal residence. This was a turning point because since then, all the following French Monarchs continued to extend the Louvre and its art collection. The first exhibitions took place at the end of the 18th century and the museum was inaugurated in 1793. It was only at the end of the 80s, that the Louvre underwent a huge change, where the steel and glass pyramid was designed by I.M Pei.
In front of the Louvre, you can have a stroll in Paris’ oldest gardens, the Tuileries Gardens. Furthermore, in a 10-minute range around the Louvre, you can walk to other points of interest, such as the île de la Cité, the Comédie-Fançaise, the Palais Royal and the Place de la Concorde.
Parking in the centre of Paris can be a complicated task, not only because parking in the city centre is expensive but also, because it is limited to two hours.
