The Musée du Louvre

I went to the Louvre. I loved it!

The first thing we looked for was the REAL Mona Lisa. 
It was cool that I got to see the actual Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci.

The Louvre itself used to be a Palace. It is one of the biggest museums in the world. There is no way we could see everything in one day so we looked for the things we wanted to see.

This was part of the ceiling.

We could see the glass pyramid from where we were inside of the Louvre.

You can see how happy I was when I finally found a painting we were looking for.

We searched for this painting.
It's "Sainte Cecile avec un ange tenant une partition" by Il Domenichino.

There were other paintings with musical instruments too!

 Can you see the violin?

This painting was amazing too. There were lots of little paintings in it. Everything was so tiny!
It's called "Views of Ancient Rome" by Giovanni Panini.

From inside the Louvre we could also see the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel. It looks like the Arc de Triumphe but it's smaller and has a chariot on top.

Here is a model of the Louvre including the new parts.
