  • After a worthy of an airport search, we finally on the premises. We had a great guide. We saw the "scenes" in bulk. We were able to better understand the roles of members of Parliament and their days. It was informative and enjoyable. I recommend to better understand the roles of members of Parliament.

  • 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.
