Napoleon III apartments

After four days of exploring, we have finally been through every open exhibition hall in the Musée du Louvre.  I have over a thousand photos to sort through, so I may share more of the exhibits later, but for now here is a peek inside the lavish Napoleon III apartments.

The exhibit also featured some of the crown jewels of Empress Eugénie, the last Empress of France and the woman in the painting in the above photograph.  Her diamond and pearl tiara was probably my favourite piece of jewellery in the whole museum.
