The Louvre was created in several phases. The most recent addition to the Louvre was the construction of the Louvre Pyramid, which functions as the museum’s main entrance. The pyramid was built in 1989 by the renowned American architect I.M. Pei. The modern addition originally received mixed reviews, as it contrasts sharply with the classical design of the surrounding buildings, but today it is generally accepted as a clever solution which has given the museum a spacious central entrance without the need to touch the historic patrimony.
I’d love to visit again and this time I would really like to try the VIP night tour and wine tasting. Not only do you get to see the Louvre after most people have gone home, there’s no queueing and the tour finishes in a famous wine bar close by. At award-winning Parisian wine bar, Ô Chateau you can try wines and local dishes. Led by one of Paris’s best sommelier you can even learn a thing or two about wine tasting. Sounds like fun doesn’t it?! Could be a great evening out – a night at the museum.
