It was established in 1546 when King Francis I, asked to build a better royal palace residence in a renaissance style, at this location. The connection of the Louver to arts was right from the start since Francis I was an avid patron of art and had a passion to collect it. Actually, it was Francis I who invited Leonardo da Vinci to France, where he spent his last three years. Francis I was also the one who originally purchase the Mona Lisa and this is the reason why the brilliant paint is in France and not Italy.

Years went by and the Louver Palace expanded and refurbished with each monarch adding another personal layer of splendor to the grandiose Palace complex. Louis XIII and Louis XIV who ruled in the 17th century had contributed greatly to the Palace's expansion and its art collections. The Museum opens to the public during the French Revelation and during the Napoleon regime, only part of the Palace was for his personal use.

The Palace is artwork for itself and an example of extraordinary architecture. It is recommended not to miss the following:
Galerie d’Apollon, a sumptuous golden gallery that was created by Louis XIV, to strengthen his image as the Sun King.
The lavish Napoleon III Apartments.
The Mobilier des résidences royales, 18th-century royal furniture collation.

The wonderful Grand Trianon was constructed in 1687 and is very unique. It has a bold design and Italian-inspired architecture, it is covered with pink marble, has a black and white floor at the peristyle, and delightful gardens. Designed by the Jules Hardouin-Mansart, the palatial Grand Trianon was a place of escape for Louis XIV from the crowded Palace. It was also in use by Louis XV's wife, Marie Leszczyńska, during the summers. Another important residence of the Grand Trianon was Napoleon, who stayed there when he could. The interior is as well imposing, with fully furnished state apartments, private chambers, and the Cotelle Gallery which has 24 paintings, most of them by Jean Cotelle.

Marie-Antoinette's Estate consists of the Petit Trianon, the English Gardens, and the Queen's hamlet. The Petit Trianon was originally ordered by King Louis XV in 1758. It took more than 10 years to build the winsome new palace that was ready for use in 1768. Following the death of Louis XV in 1774, and the beginning of Louis XVI's regime, the Petit Trianon was given to Queen Marie-Antoinette by her king-husband, and it became her favorite residence. The Queen closely supervised the design of the exceptional nearby English Gardens and the creation of the splendid Queen's hamlet who was established on a bank of a lake. While damaged during the French Revolution, it was Napoleon who wish and succeed to restore the palace and its gardens to the original design during Marie-Antoinette's days.

Today, dedicated to her memory of one of the most known royals in French history, Marie-Antoinette's Estate is the last stop in an entrancing 5-days journey in breathtaking Paris. A majestic ending of an unforgettable trip in the City of Lights and love, a place where everyone should visit, at least once in their lifetime.
