Museum
“Step inside the Centre Pompidou to fall under the spell of Picasso, Magritte, Duchamp, Pollock, Warhol and Tinguely! Your kids won’t be bored because there is specials areas for them and my girls even learn to walk in a Dubuffet cave. It open until 11 PM on thursday so it’s a good way to really see art pieces without any head hidden them! Place Georges-Pompidou, Paris – www.centrepompidou.fr * * *”

Neighbourhood
“Very hip area in Paris. It would be the equivalent of Soho in New York City. The lower part of the neighborhood is more touristy with high end boutiques while the upper area has great restaurants and fun to walk around during the day. I recommend walking down Rue de Bretagne which is my favorite street in Paris!”

Plaza
“The Place de la République's renovation was unveiled in 2013. Its traffic areas have been significantly reduced to allow more space for walkers. To relax, take a break or chat with friends, armchairs, chairs and tables are placed throughout the square. With new developments, the Place regains its popular, friendly and festive character. The "Monument à la République" is a monumental statue rising in the centre of the square, pointing upwards to overlook citizen events. The square is the ideal venue for night owls attending countless entertainment venues nearby such as bars, concert halls, nightclubs and theatres. ”

City Hall
“Since 1357, the Paris City Hall has been the seat of the Paris municipality. The current building, in neo-renaissance style, was rebuilt by the architects Théodore Ballu and Edouard Deperthes on the site of the old Hôtel de Ville, burnt down during the Paris Commune in 1871. It is possible to visit the Town Hall, place of power and prestige. Guided tours, by reservation, are organized by the Protocol Service.
