The Louvre

The courtyard and the pyramid entrance
  and the floor plan.

We visited on Sunday; the crowd was huge.

But, even though we kept getting lost, we saw the things that we were supposed to:  Winged Victory,

the Mona Lisa,

and Venus de Milo.

We spent some time in Italian

and French paintings (here's Napoleon's coronation).

A panorama of one of the rooms.

A dining room in Napoleon's quarters:

Two sculptures of Daphnis & Chloe (these for you, Martha and Chloe):

We finally had to admit that we were museumed out, after seeing probably only a percent or two of the exhibits.

Back in Montparnasse, we found a cafe open, even though it was Easter.
