The greatest creation of Leonardo da Vinci, a masterpiece of world art known all over the world. The crater on Venus is named after her.
How to see the Mona Lisa in Paris
The main mystery of the picture is the smile of Gioconda, which Da Vinci himself and his followers often painted, but she reached the peak of perfection precisely in this picture. It is rumored that the artist deliberately delayed the work to enjoy the beauty of the prima donna because he was in love with her.

You can see the famous painting only in the Louvre behind bulletproof glass.

How to do?

1. Buy a ticket at the box office of the Louvre or their official website.
2. Head to the part of the Louvre named Denon in the 7th hall of Italian painting (since this is the main exhibit, all the signs in the museum lead there).
3. Look at the most famous picture of western European art, and perhaps you will be able to solve the riddle of the masterpiece.
