  • It is this, the National Assembly, and this, in fact, says it all. This monumental building that so many can tell about the history of France. Perceived not as the Parliament building, but as a real historic Palace.

  • Of course free tour, on reservation, I went with a friend. The tour was interesting, but unfortunately there was no meeting during our presence. We didn't have the ability to access the DRC of the Hemicycle, yet empty. So we escaped from the group to go with two or three people already present in the room. The guide was may be qualified, but haughty and pretentious. Not friendly either. I don't wish you to fall on this one, which we has taken limit for terrorists when they caught us away from the group.

  • The French National Assembly--the lower house-located in the Palais Bourbon wanted by Luisa daughter of LuigiXIV and become the first Palace of the Republic in 1791. The neo classical façade that beautifies the building makes it elegant was added in 1807 by Napoleon and sometimes in the evening, is illuminated with the colors of the flag.

  • 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.
