LOUVRE MUSEUM: WORKS, TICKETS, HISTORY AND EVERYTHING YOU SHOULD KNOW

Which work of art does come into your mind when you hear people mentioning the Louvre Museum?
I’m sure that it is easy to make a connection between Leonardo’s Mona Lisa and the Louvre Museum.
However, immediately after this work, the Winged Victory of Samothrace, Psyche revived by Cupid’s kiss by Canova, the Venus de Milo and many other masterpieces will come into your mind.

The Louvre Museum is certainly one of those museums that can’t disappoint anyone, because it houses many masterpieces and I believe that it should be put on the list of museums you should see at least once in your lifetime.
Organizing a visit to the Louvre Museum, however, might not be so easy. You need to arrange a tour in order not to miss the huge quantity of works to see and someone, in fact, prefers to plan a guided tour to be sure of not exiting the Louvre without seeing the fundamental works of art on display.

That’s why I decided to gather in this post all information about the Louvre Museum, to give you all useful tips if you’re going to plan a visit.
In this post you’ll find all information about booking your entrance ticket, the history of the first public museum in the world, the works you must see, and if you can’t find what you are looking for, ask me a question in the comments (at the end of the post) and I’ll answer 🙂

TOWER OF PISA TICKETS: HOW TO BOOK AND SKIP THE LINE

What do you need to know about Tower of Pisa, tickets, reservations and a visit to the most famous leaning tower in the world?
I wrote this post to answer this question that anyone asks before going to Pisa and to help you plan your visit with peace of mind.

The Tower of Pisa is one of the symbols of Italy in the world, together with the Colosseum, the Dome of San Pietro and Piazza San Marco. It is therefore natural to expect an endless line to wait to get on.
My advice is to book tickets before arriving in Pisa. Here’s how!

ALHAMBRA TICKETS: HOW TO BOOK AND SKIP THE LINE

Alhambra tickets.Is it better to book a ticket to visit the Alhambra in Granada or buy the ticket at the entrance?
The answer to this question is to BOOK.

The Alhambra is one of the most important places in Spain and every day thousands of people visit it. Arriving at the entrance without a ticket is a big risk not only because you may have to do a long line, but also because the number of visitors allowed is limited, even though the place is huge, so you may not be able to enter.
For this reason I wrote this post where you will find all the information you need to book the entrance and admire the most spectacular architectural complex in Spain.
