The final days in Paris

Image
Our second day of our museum pass we used to go to the Louvre. It so huge - we spent from open to close there and just managed to see everything. It is also very confusing how to get from point a to point b - so many stairs and up and down floors just to see the one floor....good thing I had Raymond or I would have wondered aimlessly forever (but by the end I had the hang of it).



We started with the medieval Louvre, Greek, Etruscan, Roman and Egyptian Antiquities. When we first walked in we were right behind a few tour groups, but somehow we lost them pretty quick and we able to walk around and brows without tons of people. I cannot imagine going during the summer when it is super crowded.






I liked the different colors of stone on some of them













After that we got some lunch nearby then headed back to look at the paintings





Then my favorite part - decorative arts. So much fun pretty things.




Replica of Napoleons apartment.





Then it was off to the sculptures and near east antiquitie…
