Just in case you are in any doubt about where Aurora is!
The Louvre. 60,600 square meters and the world’s most visited
museum. We recommend good footwear and don’t be surprised if
you suddenly find it’s closing time and you didn’t manage to get the
whole way around – it’s amazing!
Completed in 1989 the glass pyramid was the brainchild of architect I. M. Pei.
The world’s most famous painting – and it’s admirers. Strangely enough it’s just about the only one in the gallery that is completely sealed off and protected from damage.

And here she is in all her glory. Lisa Del Giocondo by Leonardo da Vinci. A mere 77cm x 53cm, painted sometime between 1503-1519, and priceless!
The stunning Egyptian section is full of amazing treasures that leave you in awe of the magnificence of this civilization.
In life, a fashionista.
