  • This magnificent building, the Institut de France, is beautifully located on width. The building houses several academies and here is also the oldest library in Paris. The road past is very busy, so the best picture of the building and the great dome do you get enough taken from the bridge Pont des Arts.

  • For my taste it is one of the prettiest buildings of Paris, so shiny-domed, its windows and the upper Temple. The bottom not going in behind. Beautiful columns and triangular pediment in the Centre, and two wings of two plants in hemicirculo, surrounding this entry. It is in the extreme south of the Pont des Arts, and it was built between 1662 and 1688 by Arq. French Louis Le Vau, in a classical style. It houses the Academy of fine arts, literature, Cs.politicas, etc. We saw him day and night, all lit

  • If you're a fan of historic architecture, then make sure you bring a spare pair of pants with you, you're going to love this place. Ultimately this is an education facility, so if you're not a student then your access may be limited
  • Beautiful building!
  • Majestic architecture!
  • Very disappointed. Tried to go there to see the Da Vinci Paris Papers... This place has 2 libraries. One accessible to the public and one accessible only to academics. The Da Vinci papers are in the non accessible one. I couldn't get in to view them without some sort of academic invitation... No exceptions.
  • masterful architecture at the end of the pont des arts, Institute of france contributes to the influence of the French language. heritage day is an opportunity not to be missed, to note that one of the two libraries is reserved for academics.
