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!”

If you look up, you'll be awed by its 3-dome ceiling, letting a zenithal light coming in to exagerate the majestic view if the main room.”
