The Louvre Museum says it welcomed 8.1 million visitors in 2017, up 10% on the year before, a sign of tourism revival in Paris. Tourism in the French capital took a hit in 2016 after a series of attacks the previous year, AP reported.  Foreign visitors represent 70% of the museum attendance, a statement from the Louvre Museum said on Monday. They mainly come from the United States (1.2 million visitors, up by 25%) and from China (700,000 visitors, up by 9%). The Louvre is the world’s most-visited museum. Definitive figures of tourist numbers in Paris have not been released yet for 2017, but a rise of 10% to 12% is expected, according to the Paris tourist office, based on hotel reservations.
