This is an OK park with a magnificent mirror-dome. Unfortunately, it is located too far away from the center of town.

The parc de la villette is ok. The museum visit is a timed entry, with visits for 4-7 and 5-12 years. The timed entry means one enters with 200+ families with their kids to see 10 interactive visits. It was not managed, and chaotic. We...More

This is a great park, although too far from the main attractions it's still worth a visit. I went there on foot for the Imagine Van Gogh exhibition and the walk was perfect - you can reach it walking down the Saint Martin channel through...More

Good park, but the best part of it is to go and check the Géode and the shopping in the Science and Industry City.

We learned the hard way, be sure you know beforehand which line and which Metro station are most suitable to your destination. As it was, we had a harried time trying to locate The Philharmonie. Walked the entire length, very poorly marked with signs, asking...More

Parc de la Vilette is the perfect spot to capture the first signs of springtime in Paris. On an early, chilly spring day, these beautiful magnolias in bloom are proof that that warmer days are just ahead.

This futuristic landscape has come to define the
northeast of Paris. The Saint-Denis canal is framed
with luscious lawns and metallic buildings over a
wide-open space. Home to Europe's largest science
museum, this area rewards daytime and nighttime
explorations; there are three concert spaces, plus
cinemas and bars, and even open-air cinema in the
summer. The surrounding homes are a sharp contrast to
