Day 60- The Louvre

Today we got up and took our two trains to the Louvre! We spent several hours there because the place is so huge! It was unbelievable to see so many masterpieces in one place! It was mind blowing.  

On our way to the metro, we picked up some baguettes at the bakery near our hotel and ate them in front of the museum!

   This is of course Alexander with the Mona Lisa- the most famous painting in the world! It is hard to get to because of the crowd and how secure it is!

This is Venus de Milo. She was found on the Greek Island, Milo. Since she was found in Greece, she probably should have been named Aphrodite!

After our walk through history, we walked along the street to a cafe to get some tea and a crepe! Our last stop was at the Apple Store so Alexander could take more pictures.

We then went home and made dinner in our little Aparthotel!
