Visit the Louvre for a once-in-a-lifetime experience

TAKE me to the Louvre in Paris.

I know it's crowded and I'll have to queue to go in, but it's a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

After I've had my fill of art and stood before the Mona Lisa, let me wander outside and admire the pyramid, the giant structure of glass and metal in the main courtyard (Cour Napoléon) of the Louvre Palace.

The pyramid stands about 20m and its base is 35m.

It's a showstopper and now an important landmark of Paris, as important to visit as the Eiffel Tower.
