Travel | From Paris with love – day 3

Museu do Louvre – acordem cedo, para estarem bem cedo à porta do Museu. É cansativo estar uma ou duas horas em pé à espera que o Museu abra, mas compensa nas horas que demora a entrar se chegar depois das 9h. Não pensem que dá para ver o Museu em duas horas porque é…
