When I visited France I came from Spain, I should say that the road is delicious. Someone told me: Do you wanna know the difference between Spain and France? well the chateux of the Loire. Now I know there are too differents like water and oil.
What can I say? Val de Loire is a beautiful place but someone can tell me what in France isnt beautiful???.
Of course I got impressioned, the town, the river and that castle, it is like I was inside a postcard. Like a Harry Potter painting. What it makes it more attractive is stories. That place has many stories about kings, queens, lovers and humanists (Leonardo Da Vinci).
I couldnt came in the castle, I am pretty sure it would be a nice experience, and it is suppossed that Leonardo Da Vinci is buried there.
See the picture...
Let's see. This was one of my favorite places in Europe. When I was planning my trip of course I though about visiting this museum but I kind of bothered me that I would " waste" almost a day in Paris, inside a museum. Finally I decided to go.
Look in Paris ( at least in summer) wherever you go is full of people and you will find long lines to buy tickets, long lines to take pics to come in museums, cathedral's etc etc.
I guess the longest was in the museum. Once I came into the first room, I changed my mind, I thought : How would I waste my time going around there if I have all of this to see!!!!
I saw the museum with a guide. It is expensive but as I traveled in group the cost was cheap. If you go alone I suggest you to rent a personal guide. it is something like a walkman and you can hear a guide trough the rooms, and there are in many languages.
As i said there are lots and lots of people. Usually they don't allow to take pics but as there are too many persons and they can not take control of them you can get a pic of the Mona Lisa as I did. Light of flashes can damage paintings in other hand a pic near to Mona Lisa is more than a souvenir. I guess this is concious choice. By the way you can film instead taking pics.
For pics you must be patient remember that all that people want a pic and guess what?!!!! there is a line to take pic too!!!! Be kind and fast :D jejeje!!!
If I could describe you all what I saw in Louvre probably I never would finish. It is amazing. Please don't miss it!!!!
