The Louvre is crowded with famous women: Venus of Milo, Mona Lisa and of course Victoria of Samothrace or just Nike.
Although this beautiful statue of the goddess of victory had lost her hands and head in the "struggle for life", she retained her gentle gait and conveys a sense of flight.

1. Buy a ticket at the box office of the Louvre or on their official website (so as not to stand in line).
2. Head to the Louvre section called Denon, where Mona Lisa is also located and on the stairs in front of the gallery of Italian painting and the Hall of Apollo, you will find the beautiful statue of Nike.
