Greek, Etruscan, and Roman Antiquities in the Louvre

The Greek, Etruscan, and Roman Antiquities area is another department of the Louvre. It has two of the most famous pieces in the whole museum, which are the Venus de Milo and the Winged Victory of Samothrace. I know these pieces are justifiably famous, but they don't have the appeal to me that maybe they should have. Below is a picture of the Winged Victory. I might skip this area of the Louvre or maybe just blitz through it.


  1. I would probobly run through it, might find some interesting things to photo. If that is allowed.

  2. Photos are allowed in the Louvre, but not flashes and no tripods.
