Le Louvre - the famous museum located in the heart of Paris. We were able to see the Mona Lisa - She was smaller that I had imagined

  

The center of the Place is occupied by a giant Egyptian obelisk. It once marked the entrance to the Luxor Temple. On the pedestal are drawn diagrams explaining the machinery that were used for the transportation. The red granite column rises 23 meters high, including the base, and weighs over 250 tons. Missing its original cap, believed stolen in the 6th century BC, in 1998 the government of France added a gold-leafed pyramid cap to the top of the obelisk. The obelisk is flanked on both sides by fountains constructed at the time of its erection on the Place.

In 2000, French urban climber Alain "Spiderman" Robert, using only his bare hands and feet and with no safety devices, scaled the obelisk all the way to the top.
