Throwback Thursday: The Louvre in Paris

It’s a throwback to my time in Paris last year! I didn’t realise I hadn’t uploaded any photos of the day Moana and I headed to the Louvre for a day trip.

After missing out on the Louvre during our first big(ish) trip to Paris we made sure it was on our to-do list this time around. The line was horribly long in the scorching hot sun, but eventually we got in.

I’ve been to the Louvre before, during my previous big trip to France when I was 12, but you can never seen the Louvre in a day, so this time around, as well as seeing some of the obvious masterpieces it was wonderful getting to see the things I missed the last time. I think that now I’m a lot older I also appreciated everything a little more, making it a lot more special.

As usual I had to grab the audio (in this case 3D visual) guide, because I always love to find out as much as I can about places and things that I go to visit. I absolutely recommend grabbing one, they’re not free but they’re super cheap and even cheaper if you’re a student (holla).

We literally spent most of the day there, and while it was an amazing experience, we were pretty knackered by the time we got home.

I took way too many photos while I was there, so here’s a quick selection of some of the highlights. I also filmed some very tiny parts of my trip to the Louvre which I’ve put on the end of some footage of when we went up the Eiffel Tower, which I’ll link at the bottom of this post if you fancy a squiz.

Check out random footage I took of the trip to the Louvre as well as a few shots from the top of the Eiffel Tower:

    Absolutely loved this post! I could really relate because my first trip to Paris, we missed out on the Louvre, but second time round last year, we were not going to make the same mistake! Its an absolutely huge museum, so we also didn’t get to see it all, but for sure on the next trip, we need to get more art in!

    • Thank you! Yeah it’s absolutely massive with so much to see, I definitely wouldn’t have been able to do it two days in a row though. As wonderful as it is, it is pretty overwhelming and tiring!
