The Louvre is a tourist’s obligation just as much as the Eiffel Tower or Montmartre, yet at 65,000 m² with 35,000 pieces of art it often overwhelms. Henri Loyrette, former director of the Louvre, says that 80% of visitors go just to see the Mona Lisa. That’s a crime which THATLou looks to solve, focusing participants’ visits on a theme, whilst expanding their interest in un-trodden corners. Moreover it’s FUN, inevitably pumping adrenaline in the chase to capture as much treasure within the given time.
The scavenger hunt had five teams scurrying from ancient Egyptian artifacts to neoclassical statues, was the most fun that I’ve had at the Louvre…ever.— Out and About in Paris
