Louvre: Mona Lisa
We reached the Mona Lisa after a marathon 30 minute trek (someone thought it would be clever to put it as far from the entrance as humanly possible ). The crowd to see this one painting far exceeded any other item, which probably has more to do with marketing than quality (which is to say, the Louvre isn't short of astounding art objects, so the Mona Lisa seemed less exceptional that it would have in, say, the Fort Worth City Library - but then, we walked 30 minutes to see it!).
But it was a nice painting.
