We recently visited the Grand Palais to see the Artists and Robots exhibition which is a fab location for the contemporary exhibition. Afterwards we enjoyed a walk in the park nearby where local Parisians choose to picnic in the park their lunch.

We went there on those special occasions when the whole space is empty so you can admire the architecture and the proportions of it. We had a great time even though we couldn’t book for the guided tours they were sold out.
