I have been to Paris few times before and never paid much attention to La Villette until this time when I saw the open-air cinema ad in the metro. This is a huge park just on the edge of the city with everything including science...More

The Parc of La Villette is a very good place to go, in my opinion much better than Jardins du Luxembourgh. There you can find not just a beautiful parc, but a space to rest, play and attend auditions. In fact is a very large...More

The whole area (and it is pretty big) is supposed to be a park. Yet, there's too few green areas and too many buildings and concrete and asphalt. Built around a couple of multipurpose halls, this is a place that screams "lack of heart". While...More

Huge park on the outskirts of the city of Paris, where the slaughter houses used to be. Place for some concerts or skateboarding. The music museum is here.

This place is huge and clearly the general design of the area has been planned not just accidentally evolved. It's only that the planning has been catastrophically bad. There are tens of kilometers of paths with very strange routes and no written or visual hint...More

wide-open space. Home to Europe's largest science
museum, this area rewards daytime and nighttime
