You can't come to Paris without seeing the Louvre Pyramid lit up at night! It is truly glorious and breathtaking!
The Louvre Pyramid stands in the incredibly spacious entry courtyard of the Louvre Museum. It is a huge clear pyramid made of glass and metal, designed by I.M.Pei. Three smaller pyramids surround it, as well as fountains and large reflecting pools. In the courtyard are statues and of course the beautiful honeycomb-colored buildings of the Louvre Museum.
After dark the pyramid takes on a golden hue with its perfect lighting. The pyramid reflects in the pool in front. We saw a couple getting wedding photos here- what a great spot!
From the Louvre Pyramid you can walk directly into the Jardin des Tuileries, and explore its fantastic statues and pond with toy sailboats. In the Tuileries Gardens, there is also a playground and carousel for the kids!
