Don't miss the current exhibition (from Palmyra to Mosul/Mossoul). It is superb. And the food in the top-floor restaurant is top class too, matched by perfect service and, great views. CAn't recommend this place highly enough
This place is a real gem. There was a fascinating exhibition tracing the history (and destruction) of Palmyra and Mosel when we were there. Very well explained. And EXCELLENT restaurant (and view) on the 9th floor. Don't miss it.
We come here for special exhibitions which are always well-curated, interesting. Display spaces are pleasant. I love the rooftop cafe on a sunny day with the splendid views of the river and Ile St. Louis. Great place to rest and have a drink.
This Institute of the Arabic World in Paris never disappoint with the exhibitions they organize. The place is very pleasant and easily to get there, in the Rive Gauche.

The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During
the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
