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 * * *”

“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!”

“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. The visitor discovers in particular the Salle des Fêtes, designed as a replica of the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles. Large free exhibitions are also organized and are very successful.”

Bistro
“Few know that the bar has opened an art installation. Called the Kiss Room, it's a single hotel room that guests can book for a single night only. The tiny space is absolutely covered in 1,000 mirrors so that it appears endless.”
