Went to the Louvre today. It was so beautiful!

The Louvre is a museum housed in the Louvre Palace, originally built as a fortress in the late 12th century under Philip II. In 1682, Louis XIV chose the Palace of Versailles for his household, leaving the Louvre primarily as a place to display the royal collection, including, from 1692, a collection of ancient Greek and Roman sculpture. ¬†During the French Revolution, the National Assembly decreed that the Louvre should be used as a museum to display the nation’s masterpieces.

These were the things that we saw that I loved the most:
