Imagine the Louvre museum, but without the tourists. Imagine walking the empty corridors. Gliding up the deserted steps to the Winged Victory of Samothrace.
Imagine having an (almost) private audience with the Mona Lisa herself.
Like something from the Da Vinci Code, huh?

She shared some tips and facts about the Louvre, Da Vinci, and the first arrondissement where she lives.
