Today Annie interviews Daisy de Plume about her treasure hunt service in the Louvre. Going on a treasure hunt in the Louvre is a fantastic idea, especially if you are visiting with children!
Daisy is from New York originally and her goal is to get customers interested in the art and help them organize their visit in a fun way. All the details are on Daisy’s website and of course we discuss the whole thing on the show.
While this treasure hunt in not exclusively designed for children, it does seem like a wonderful activity for families in particular.
Later in the show we discuss strikes in France and how they can be frustrating for visitors who don’t understand the French system. And since you never know if you’ll experience a French strike or not during your visit, it’s important for you to understand this background information.
Ready? Get set for your treasure hunt in the Louvre!

Today we discuss Napoleon in Paris. Specifically how Napoleon changed Paris physically and how he left his mark on all French institutions. Under Napoleon France transformed itself from the “Ancien Régime” to a “modern” society. We don’t discuss the Napoleonic conquests, but rather his long-lasting influence on France.
