WWW.GLOBALFOOTBALL.COM
  • Day 10 – Game Day in Paris WWW.GLOBALFOOTBALL.COM
  • Day 11 – Louvre Museum The worlds largest art museum, the Louvre is housed in a medieval fortress-turned-castle so grand its worth a tour itself. You walk through the 71-foot glass pyramid designed by I.M. Pei and added in 1989, and step into another world- one with carved ceilings, deep-set windows, and so many architectural details, you could spend a week just admiring the rooms. But check out the art on the walls. The Mona Lisa is here, as well as the Venus de Milo and Winged Victory (the headless statue, circa 200 BC, discovered at Samothrace). The Louvre has seven different departments of paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures and antiquities. Dont miss the Egyptian collection, complete with creepy sarcophagi, or the collection of Greek ceramics, one of the largest in the world. WWW.GLOBALFOOTBALL.COM
  • Day 12 – Loire ValleyFrance’s aristocrats began building defensive castles in the Loire Valley inthe 11th century. A few hundred years later, their descendants createdpleasure palaces among the lush green forests and wandering waterways.Today, sumptuous Renaissance castles stud the banks of the silvery LoireRiver, the longest in France. But few castles can compete with Château deChenonceau. Built on a series of arches over the Cher River, Chenonceau wasdesigned by a woman in the 16th century. It was once inhabited by Catherinede Medicis, who commissioned the delicate spirals and of the formal gardens,and had the bridge covered by a two-story stone gallery. You’ll also visitChâteau Chambord, the largest and most lavish of the Loire châteaux. It took1800 workers over a decade to complete the palace for King Francois I, whoonce suggested that the river be diverted to make a moat. The palace has 440rooms, and in many of them you can see Francois’ salamander emblem. Stopto see Chartres Cathedral. Built on an ancient worshipping ground to house apiece of the Virgin Mary’s veil (which is still on display), this 13th-centuryGothic church is best known for its windows. With over 20,000 square feet ofstained glass. WWW.GLOBALFOOTBALL.COM
