Paris is one of AFAR’s favorite places to travel in May, but here’s a good reason to go a little earlier. On April 30, Airbnb is teaming up with the Louvre to let one winner and a guest spend the night at the world-famous museum.
After the Louvre closes to the public that evening, the lucky pair will get to sleep under the museum’s glass pyramid inside a “mini pyramid” that was designed to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the architectural icon. Airbnb confirms that the pyramid is not see through and the entrance is angled so that nobody outside can see who is inside.
- Round-trip economy class flights for all non-French residents (if the winner lives in France, equivalent transport will be arranged to Paris)
- Two nights in other Airbnb accomodations in Paris on April 29 and May 1
- All meals and ground transfers in Paris during the trip
As with Airbnb’s other Night At contests, which have included overnights at Denmark’s Lego House and Dracula’s Castle in Transylvania, you’ll have to answer a question tailored specifically to this contest to win. This time around, the panel of judges will pick the winner based on how he or she answers the question: “Why would you be the Mona Lisa’s perfect guest?”
To enter, visit airbnb.com/louvre and submit your answer by April 12 at 11:59 p.m. French time (5:59 p.m. ET). The winner will be announced on April 19.
Even if you don’t win, you can still experience some undiscovered parts of the Louvre after the contest wraps up. Starting in May, the Louvre is launching a special series of Airbnb Experiences, which include exclusive visits and small concerts that anyone can book through the site. These Experiences will continue through the end of 2019; more details will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
