The MusÃ©e du Louvre is the world's most visited art museum and The City of Light's pride and joy. Visitors to Paris's paragon, which houses nearly 35,000 works of art, including Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, can spend hours, days - even weeks - exploring the beloved trove. After winding your way through the Louvre, cross the Seine to the intoxicating MusÃ©e d'Orsay, which boasts 19th and 20th century art by impressionist masters like Monet, Van Gogh and Cezanne. Perhaps your passion lies with modern art? The Center Pompidou - commonly referred to as the Beaubourg - is Europe's largest modern art museum and hosts consistently spectacular exhibitions.
