We are convinced each of us has to experience certain things at least once in our lives. Seeing Mona Lisa in Louvre is most definitely one of the “top 10 things you have to see before you die” - as they say. Turns out it’s not worth it and here’s why: to get to the masterpiece you have to stay in a 30-40 min labyrinth (which provides structured queue), afterwards the guard lets a group of 10-15 people go “close” to the Djokonda’s portrait, giving them a ONE-MINUTE look at it (not mentioning a 5-meter distance and a bulletproof glass), while museum workers are shouting at tourists to turn their flashlight off, to move faster etc. My point is you don’t even GET to see the piece including when you’re standing in front of it, whilst your other “colleagues” use this one minute for making selfies, photos of each other with a $830 million background and the “background” itself. All you have left is to stand surrounded by total chaos and have a disappointment.
