First constructed as a fortress in 1190 by King Philippe Auguste to protect Paris against Viking raids, it was then changed into a magnificent Renaissance style building. Throughout the centuries, French kings and emperors have improved and enlarged it, making it the impressive site you see today. With its 800 years of history, the Louvre is not only a museum, but a palace with a centuries-old architectural evolution. After exploring some masterpieces like Venus de Milo, the Mona Lisa, and the Wedding Feast of Cana, transfer back to the hotel and have lunch on your own.

In the afternoon, you're free to explore more of "Gay Paree"! There’s a Paris for everyone, whether you’re into haute couture shopping, poking around in flea markets, exploring the Latin Quarter, visiting museums, seeking out artistic treasures, or visiting some of the world’s most recognizable monuments — from the elegant ironwork of the Eiffel Tower to the “inside-out” architecture of the Centre Pompidou.
