The Louvre
There’s much to admire along this majestic walk through royalParis: the art hanging on the world-famous museum’s walls,of course, but also the Louvre’s magnificent architecture, theTuileries’ elegant landscaping, and Monet’s beloved murals inthe Orangerie.
METRO: LOUVRE-RIVOLI
 Walk down Rue de lAmiral de Coligny toward the Seine. Fuelup at chic café
Le Fumoir (1;
6 Rue de l’Amiral de Coligny).Cross the street and head beneath the arched gateway into theLouvre’s handsome
Cour Carrée (2)
. Originally begun as a fortress in the 13th century, the Louvre was expanded in the17th century to become a royal palace. Head straight acrossthe courtyard and cross into the Cour Napoleon, where visitorsenter the museum through I. M. Pei’s controversial
pyramid(3)
. The Louvre is the largest museum in the world, with a for-midable collection that ranges from Mesopotamian antiquitiesto the
 Mona Lisa
. Plan your visit carefully to avoid becoming overwhelmed—conquering the whole museum in a single dayis a Napoleonic feat not worth attempting. Afterward, enjoy a scenic (if pricey) respite at the
Café Marly (4)
, which enjoysa prized location beneath the arcades on the north side of thesquare. Continue west through the Tuileries, the royal gardendesigned in the 1600s by master landscaper André Le Nôtre.From here, several Paris landmarks align along the grandaxis: the Louvre, the Tuileries, the Concorde’s Obélisque, theChamps-Elysées, the Arc de Triomphe, and the Grande Arche dela Défense. On your left at the far end of the gardens, the
Muséede l’Orangerie (5)
most famously houses Monet’s
 Nymphéas
,but holds other masterpieces as well. To your right is the
Jeude Paume (6)
, a one-time royal tennis court that today housesthe Centre National de la Photographie. Exit from the garden’snorthwest corner to reach the Concorde metro.
