Description

The Louvre has been history’s stage since 1190. Fortress, royal palace, artists’ residence and finally museum, the Louvre boasts a series of stunning rooms and galleries where nearly 1,000 years of French history, architecture and decoration have unfolded. All these spaces, some grandiose, others more intimate, can become, for the time of an evening, the magical places of corporate events.

Viewpoint

View of the Carrousel du Louvre, Champs-Elysées and Arc de Triomphe. The hundreds of windows provide unique views over the Seine, Cour Napoléon, Saint-Germain-l'Auxerrois Church, Pont Neuf and Rue de Rivoli.
