  • Firstly, I wrote to my MP to get an invitation. The response was immediate. The appointment. The staff was courteous and the tour will be unforgettable. Almost 3 hours to visit the fairs. The comments of the audio guide and explanatory signs are perfect and complete. It's beautiful, it's touching symbols, names, busts, of texts, open to art, revolutionary, civic, citizens or democratic... A treat... and then the post office, the functioning human, material, all is revealed... And then sit in the Chamber whose desks are some famous names of our Democratic Republic... and finally end with the collection of so many different Marianne... so touching, beautiful, warriors or injured... I didn't be much affected and excited about this visit... I recommend it. especially since it is free. Thank you Mr Congressman have given me this privilege. Thanks to Mr of the US and his team, keen to meet my demand in the dates of my stay in Paris. I even finished in the shop of the National Assembly... I didn't know that there will be a shop!

  • The Assemblée Nationale, located in palais Bourbon, is the lower house of the French parliament, and this is where politics happen! The building is quite lovely, architecturally speaking, and it offers open visits with audio guides a few times a day (not on Sunday). Worth visiting.
  • National parliaments house of Republique of France.
  • Don't miss it, free tour if you book in advance on their site
  • Very imposing.
