Its exhibits come from such diverse origins as [[ancient Egypt]], [[classical Greece]] and the [[Roman Empire]], medieval Europe, and Napoleonic France. Its most famous exhibit, of course, is Leonardo da Vinci's painting of the Mona Lisa (French: ''La Joconde'', Italian: ''La Gioconda''), generally to be found surrounded by hordes of camera-flashing tourists. The Louvre poses many of the same challenges to the visitor as Paris itself; overwhelming in size, crowded in high seasons, and much information available only in French. If you want to see everything in the Louvre, plan ''at least'' two full days. However, it is better to pick and choose, as the collection was assembled with an eye to completeness rather than quality.
