Louvre Museum in Paris – Top Tourists Attraction

Posted on October, 30 2014

The busiest visitor attraction and first stop in paris for most art lovers is the Louvre, the largest museum in the western world.

The Louvre, in its successive architectural metamorphoses, has dominated central Paris since the late 12th century. Largest museum of France, The Louvre Museum (Le Musée du Louvre in French) presents collections of western art from the Middle Ages to 1850, and the antique civilisations that have preceded and influenced this art. The Louvre, originally a royal palace but now the world’s most famous museum, is a must-visit for anyone with a slight interest in art. Some of the museum’s most celebrated works of art include the Mona Lisa and the Venus of Milo. Originally the building was a fortress and if you go to the basement you can see the original walls which date from 1190. In the 16th Century it was turned into a Renaissance style palace which housed the royal art collection which consisted of a dozen paintings by such artists as Leonardo di Vinci and Raphael that had been stolen from Italy. The palace was expanded and renovated and was the home of King Louis XIV until he moved to Versailles and the place fell into disrepair, full of bums, bars and brothels. (Actually it must have been amazing during that period).The Louvre once again became the home for some of the royal art of Louis XIV and Marie Antionette shortly before their beheadings in 1793 when it held over 2500 pieces. Though originally only kings and royalty were able to view the art, after the French Revolution the doors were opened for everyone. It contains some of the most famous pieces in the world including the Venus di Milo, Mona Lisa, Winged Victory of Samothrace and the best collection of Greek, Roman, and Egyptian antiquities, and paintings from the middle ages to be found under one roof.

The collection of the Louvre Museum was first established in the sixteenth century as the private collection of King Francis I. One of the works of art he purchased was the now famous Mona Lisa painting. The collection grew steadily thanks to donations and purchases by the kings. In 1793, during the French Revolution, the Louvre became a national art museum and the private royal collection opened to the public. The museum has a collection of over one million works of art, of which about 35,000 are on display, spread out over three wings of the former palace. The museum has a diverse collection ranging from the Antiquity up to the mid-nineteenth century. Some of the most famous works of art in the museum are the Venus of Milo, the Nike of Samothrake, the Dying Slave by Michelangelo and of course Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.

Web Buzz: MiFlight app helps air travelers gauge security line waits

Posted on October, 27 2014

Name: MiFlight

Everyone hates standing in the dreaded airport security line, but what if you knew your wait time wouldn’t be as long as you had thought?

Available: iOS

Cost: Free

What it does: Travelers contribute their security-line wait times to the MiFlight app so the next flier can have a better experience. It includes information for 54 airports at the most-traveled hubs around the world.

What’s hot: The app is beautiful and easy to use. Input your airport, terminal and gate to get your estimated wait time in the security line. You can quickly share your info using Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, email, text or Instagram. Ready to help other travelers? Just click on the timer, input your minutes and share with the app. The app lets you know when the wait time was last updated by date and time.

What’s not: After you type in your airport the next step is to pick your terminal. That was easy, but I kept getting stuck on the next step — choosing my gate area. You’ll want to have your gate info handy to use the app. My upcoming flight information, which was mailed to me by a travel agent, didn’t have my gate details nor did my Tripit (basic version), but when I checked in with my WorldMate travel itinerary app it did. Note: The airport maps are fairly standard, but the developer will release significant location-sensitive improvements in the near future.

Worth it: Yes, I’m keeping my eye on this one. It had been a few days since someone submitted a wait time for some airports and terminals, but with a critical mass contributing to it I think this app could be helpful.
