From what I had heard, I was expecting to be underwhelmed by the Mona Lisa. But, I was pleasantly surprised to still be in awe of the work even after seeing it in person, albeit from a roped off distance and through tinted glass. After taking a few pictures (no flash, though I felt like the only person obeying the rules), I wandered at a more leisurely stroll through some other points of interest in the museum. Highlights for me include: Winged Victory, Cupid and Psyche (my personal favorite), and Venus de Milo. Some of the ceilings were just phenomenal too. A really amazing museum and well worth the visit. From there, we hopped on the bus again and took a few short stops at Notre Dame, Arc de Triumph, and Palais de Chaillot.
