We will help you navigate in this oversaturated place with beauty. “Mona Lisa” by the unrivaled Leonardo da Vinci. A canvas masterpiece covered in legends and secrets. Nothing attracts tourists so much as the bewitching smile of Gioconda. The second star of the Louvre (only in a row, and not in significance) is Venus of Milos.

In 2008, the tower sparkled with blue, strewn with stars (France was then the EU presidency and the radiance of the tower resembled the flag of Europe). You can visit the ice rink at the bottom of the structure. About two dozen times it was sold, several times – for scrap. This landmark of Paris survived the fires of 1956 and 2003. False mining reports and suicide cases have occurred in the history of the Iron Lady. We do not want to intimidate you, but we have no right to hide such facts.
