So the Louvre is housed in the palace that Louis the 14th ditched in favor of building his little chateau out in the country. And frankly this place is so big that Versailles is a bit of a shack in comparison. What started out as a fortress in the late 12th century has grown into a massive palace.
We probably could have camped out there for a week, but with our museum passes we were able to spend a morning and afternoon there with a relaxing break for tea in the Tuileries Garden. I love that the Museum Passes give you in and out privileges, rather than having to stay in the Museum the whole time as you would with a regular ticket.
