  • Caesar is quite impressive and remarkable beautiful discovery by exposure Derain why should he have to do to as rude staff in the Parisian museums? the vigilantes nickname were slumped on their Chair, absolutely no friendliness, completely disconnected from the reality

  • I would like to express my personal appreciation for this strange building that encloses the treasures that are often not properly appreciated. In addition to its important structural significance that may or may not be shared offers interesting temporary exhibitions periodically, a Museum of contemporary art, extremely important and rich, Multimedia Center and finally a superb view of the city from enjoy from the top floor. The problem is that in fact it integrates, as context, with difficulty in the City Centre therefore is not fully accepted ...

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
