Escalier du Ministre
in the Richelieu wing of the Louvre
The Louvre is filled with architectural designs and details,
and this staircase, Escalier du Ministre,
led up to the private apartments of the Minister of State.
If you visit this area of the museum, you can walk up these steps
just as the royal visitors once did,
and amble through the apartments of Napoleon III.
It is interesting to discover the many elegant designs
of the Louvre staircases.
