Ever sceptical of booking an AirBnb because of its terrible reviews? (Small kitchen! Bad location! Not enough toilet paper!)
Well, you could probably push your doubts aside on this especially large and fancy apartment.
This week, Airbnb announced they’re offering one hell of a new lodging experience for two curious travellers: a night alone in the Louvre.
Yes, you will sleep a few hundred yards away from the Mona Lisa, which will be at your sole viewing pleasure and without obstruction in the form of phones and selfie sticks.
So you’re finally headed on that overseas vacation that’s been marked on your calendar for months now. Congratulations!
As part of this one-time-only night at the museum, you’ll be led on a private tour by an art historian and live out a hipster’s paradise, which includes relaxing on a “sumptuous Parisian lounge sofa” listening to French music on vinyl records next to the Mona Lisa, a dinner alongside the Venus De Milo, and your very own concert in Napoleon III’s apartment—in other words, the Louvre really wants a good review.
And where will you be sleeping exactly? Your very own transparent, makeshift room underneath the museum’s clear-glass pyramid (which presumably will allow anyone nearby to watch you sleep?).
If the idea of sleeping in a glass room with an empty museum at your disposal sounds enticing, you’ll have to apply on AirBnb’s website by April 12 and answer why you’d be Mona Lisa’s perfect guest (the joke is she’s your AirBnb host, get it?)
A winner will be selected by mid-April and flown out by end of April — so don’t make any plans this month if you’re planning to win.
