With an art historian at your side to provide a historical backdrop, begin your exploration of the Louvre's impressive collection of ancient antiquities. Gaze in wonder upon some of the earliest examples of ancient writing as you discuss the role of language in the development of art and society. Step back in time as you explore the department of Egyptian Antiquities and marvel at the relics of civilizations along the Nile over a period spanning thousands of years. Progress to the exhibits of Etruria, Greece, and Rome as you examine the influence of earlier civilization in the works of the Venus de Milo to the Nike of Samothrace.
