I was transported to the Louvre for 1-1/2 hours this week, learning from an expert passionate about history and art. I so appreciated her providing historic background on the building of the Louvre and its changing configurations over time as well as her insights into some of her most beloved sculptures and paintings. It was very close to being on an actual Context Walk, which always deepens and enriches any travel experience.
