A visit to Centre Pompidou wasn't even on our list of things to do when we visited Paris in February. Our mistake: this is a spectacular venue for contemporary art and film, with much to enjoy. We found everything we needed to know at www.centrepompidou.fr.

Had an advance ticket for the Pompidou but probably didn't need it. Just visited the modern art collection on the top floors; it was well displayed and comprehensive if lacking any particularly famous painting. Didn't do the Cubism exhibition on the first floor but only...More

I spent an enjoyable few hours here with my six-year-old. The children's gallery may be small but there were lots of pieces that captured his imagination in the main galleries. He was awestruck by the building itself and we rode the escalators to the top...More

The Centre Pompidou building itself is unusual. It is as if turned inside out with metal structuresinstead of the fasad. From the upper floors there is a biautiful view of Paris. On the square in front of the museum many people rest and sit right...More

Lovely place. Unfortunately let down by petit bureaucracy, such as not being avle to eat own food anywhere inside the building. Exhibit space is too narrow for exhibitions meaning people walk straight in front of those trying to view the exhibits. This lets down certain...More

Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris,
Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but
the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it
houses the main shopping mall, which nestles
underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and
international restaurants coupled with beautiful
churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to
it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and
