Choose a holiday apartment in Paris LouvreThe Louvre area of Paris is home to some of the city's greatest attractions, including the world-famous Louvre Museum. Visitors will need to spend at least two days in the museum to view all of its collections, which contain nearly 35,000 antiquities and works of art. Leonardo Da Vinci's captivating Mona Lisa is one of the museum's main highlights, with her enigmatic smile attracting and enchanting tourists from all over the world. Choosing to stay in a Paris vacation apartment in the Louvre area of Paris allows smart visitors to beat the crowds by arriving at the Louvre Museum early in the day.
The Louvre Museum occupies the site of the Louvre Palace, which has dominated this area of Paris since the 12th century. Over the centuries, it was gradually transformed from an imposing fortress into the opulent palace that stands here today.
Stretching from the Louvre Palace to the Place de la Concorde is the beautiful Tuileries Garden, where in fine weather locals and tourists can be seen strolling along tree-lined paths and relaxing by one of the gorgeous fountains.
Tucked away in one corner of the garden is the Musée de l'Orangerie, a tiny museum that houses eight of Monet's huge water lily canvases in rooms designed to let in just the right amount of light to show off the works. Visitors who sit for a while in one of these small oval galleries become immersed in the paintings and experience a wonderful sense of calm - perhaps not dissimilar to that experienced by Monet in his garden?
The Louvre area has dining options to suit all tastes and budgets. From rickety stalls selling inexpensive crepes and sausages, to the upmarket Point Bar run by the daughter of French chef Jean Bardet, visitors staying in Louvre apartments are sure to be delighted with the range of food available in the local area.
Not to be missed is the Chocolat L'Africain served at the Angelina Tea Room, a hot chocolate so thick and creamy that it falls somewhere between a decadent drink and a delicious dessert. With so much to offer, the Louvre area of Paris is the perfect holiday destination for lovers of French food and fine art.
