1st arrondissement (detail photo)

*****Fee--- Rue de Rivoli--- Metro: Palais Royal Louvre =5 min walk--- Louvre Museum--- Interior, all sizes and ages. In the “Sully” wing on the first floor, (I think 1st floor French style). The room called “French Sculpture” room #33” is a large marble mosaic by Francesco Belloni, circa 1810. This mosaic is one of the first examples of the revival of interest in mosaics in France. Originally on the floor of the museum, over time it has ended up on the wall behind a statue of Minerve.
