  • We were with a group of friends to be able to visit the Assembly, thanks to our MP. Place emblematic loan of a very large story. Our history. "The library is simply majestic, the room of the lost steps, the room of four columns (famous room which can be seen on television), the Delacroix, the Rotunda of Alechinsky lounge". The Republican Guard. In short, if you have the possibility to see absolutely.

  • Ask your MP to attend debates. We'll send you the program, you choose and you come the day j with your identity. The House is smaller than on TV. That's interesting. But you did not come in a group, you will not be able to visit all of the National Assembly and it would be a shame. I went there during the heritage days, Wow, don't miss the library, the visit of the palais bourbon, the post... I brought for the occasion in a letter. The staff is very friendly and I didn't even get a special stamp National Assembly on a medium that I had brought. It is huge, I also loved the place where receptions go, looks like the Hall of mirrors... great. Enjoy your visit

  • Built in 1722 to 1728. It is possible to make a virtual visit but nothing worth a real visit: they are batch of 50 people. It's worth, but it takes a lot of time in advance.

  • It was neat to see another national parliament! There was a certain matter-of-fact quality to it, nothing like the grandeur of the American Capitol building. I liked that. The guard was kind enough to let me snap a photo of him, too!
  • 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.
  • Classic style building
  • National parliaments house of Republique of France.
  • Don't miss it, free tour if you book in advance on their site
