A Day in the Museum: Visiting the Louvre Part 3: The 1st Floor

The 1st floor contains some of the most iconic pieces of art within the museum walls. This floor houses the Egyptian Antiquities, Greek, Etruscan, and Roman Antiquities, Decorative Arts, Prints and Drawings, as well as Paintings Collections.

TIP! Make sure to plan the routes ahead of time. Given that there are iconic pieces of art within each floor this shouldn’t be a reason to miss other pieces that are located in the vicinity.

  1. Love this post and these photos! I just went a few months ago and it was overwheling yet so amazing. I loved the Mona Lisa. A ton of people though but still worth it for me. I also loved the Winged Victory of Samothrace! I don’t know it was just beaming at me when I was walking up the stairs <3 <3

  2. Ahh You made very comprehensive posts of Louvre. I have yet to write one, even if I’ve been there three times. It feels so overwhelming for me to even start. Of course everyone is bound to see the Mona Lisa. But there’s just so much to see in Louvre, you could spend days or weeks there!
