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 🙂

The Winged Victory is number two on my list of the most beautiful works of the ancient world after the Laocoönte.
The Winged Victory, like the Laocoönte, was discovered after centuries during which it had been forgotten and its recovery contributed to the increase in its allure.

In this post you’ll find everything you should know about the Winged Victory of Samothrace, what it represents, when it was discovered and where to see it.
