      Make art, not war. Believe it or not, what you know today as a very civilized and highly respected museum was actually built as a fortress in 1190 . France's king was about to go off to battle in the Crusades and the country couldn't be left defenseless at that particular point on the Seine. So a team of engineers designed and constructed a moat-surrounded, circular tower-defended structure that would later serve as a royal residence before finally becoming an art museum in 1793.

      The Louvre's own architecture is actually a work of art in itself. The 652,300  square foot structure is a celebration of baroque and modern design. As part of the Grand Louvre project in the 1980s, I.M. Pei constructed a glass pyramid over an underground lobby for a striking contemporary accent the museum has become famous for.

      Inside, the hits just keep on coming. The Louvre has over 35,000  artworks on display (some more than 7,000 years old!) including antiquities from Egypt, Greece and Rome, Islamic art, paintings, sculptures, decorative arts, and more. You know about Mona Lisa and Venus, but other masterpieces  include the Frieze of Archers, Liberty Leading The People, and the Law Code of Hammurabi.

      Armed with your smart audio guide and handy route map, you'll work your way through the Louvre like a docent and emerge from your walking tour feeling like a cultured art professor. Now that's something to appreciate.

      Mona Missing!

      Today, Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa smiles mysteriously at millions of admirers in the Louvre from behind bulletproof glass, but that wasn't always the case. In 1911, the painting disappeared, enraging and tantalizing the public with the mystery. For two years, the French police haplessly investigated. (Pablo Picasso was a suspect at one point!) But in 1913, the real thief was captured when he attempted to sell the Mona Lisa to an art dealer in Florence.
