PARIS, THE CITY OF LIGHTS
Paris, the City of Lights, eternal, surprising, magical, and sometimes secretive Paris has everything you're looking for. One of the most beautiful cities in the world, seducing visitors from across the globe with its exceptional architecture and cultural wonders. The city is home to a living heritage, constantly modernizing and enriching. More than just the national capital, Paris is also the capital of gastronomy, fashion, and shopping, a city where something is always happening. In terms of quality of life and sustainable development, it offers an especially welcoming environment for its inhabitants and its visitors. Innovative, audacious, and vibrant, Paris is one of the foremost cities of the 21st century.
If you want to call yourself a traveller, you cannot do so unless you have visited Paris. This is a “must-visit” destination for everyone who wants to see the world up close. Paris is an example of people’s perseverance and endurance. A city that is aptly called the “La Ville-Lumiere” — a name it owes first to its fame as a centre of education and ideas during the Age of Enlightenment and later to its early adoption of street lighting.
Midnight in Paris is a magical time, with the city lit is all it’s glory. Paris by night is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. It’s a sparkling beauty, this “City of Lights”.
The Louvre Museum (French: Musée du Louvre, is the world's largest museum and a historic monument in Paris, France. A central landmark of the city, it is located on the Right Bank of the Seine in the city's 1st arrondissement (district or ward). The museum is housed in the Louvre Palace, originally built as a fortress.
With its rich display of culture and stellar collections, the Louvre may be the world's greatest art museum. The former fortress began its career as a public museum in 1793 with 2,500 paintings and now houses some 30,000, covering human civilization from antiquity to the 19th century.
The most famous works from antiquity include the Seated Scribe, the Jewels of Rameses II and the armless duo: the Winged Victory of Samothrace and the Venus de Milo. From the Renaissance, don't miss Michelangelo's Slaves, Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa or the museum's works by Raphael, Botticelli and Titian. French masterpieces from the 19th century include Ingres' La Grande Odalisque, Géricault's The Raft of the Medusa, and the work of David and Delacroix.
The Louvre Pyramid was built in the 1980s as the main entrance to the Louvre Museum. The modern glass design forms a nice contrast with the historic architecture of the Louvre Palace.
History Of The Louvre: From Château To Museum
A visit to the Louvre and its collections lets visitors discover Western art from the Middle Ages to 1848, as well as a large number of ancient civilizations. Yet it also offers another history to explore. The grand palace that houses the museum, which dates back to the late twelfth century, is a true lesson in architecture: from 1200 to 2011, the most innovative architects have in turn built and developed the Louvre. Long the seat of power, this royal residence was also home to French heads of state until 1870 and is one of the major backdrops to the history of Paris and of France.
