Escalier Daru

Posted on Updated on

BY FAR, our favorite experience at Le Louvre every visit is ascending the Daru Stairs
We arrive as early as possible, to be one of the first to enter the Denon Wing
Up an escalator, through admission, then ascending a small spiral staircase
Through a hall of Classical and Italian Sculpture – the Daru Stairs appear
with the giant Winged Victory of Samothrace at the top

If it is soon after opening, we ascend an emppty staircase. If it is later in the day, the staircase is littered with loiterers, sculkers and tourists (just like ourselves)
