You will then be free to spend a little more time in the Louvre to visit other sections of the largest museum in the world The Palace ?"A medieval fortress, the palace of the kings of France, and a museum for the last two centuries, the architecture of the Louvre Palace bears witness to more than 800 years of history." Two Centuries as a Museum ?"
