The lavish Second Empire style Palais Garnier is home to the Paris National Opera and was opened in 1875. The Palais Garnier holds ballets, operatic performances and symphony concerts. It is extremely pleasant to take a stroll here during the interval.
The Arab World Institute is a cultural, Parisian institute dedicated to the Arab world. Here you will find items that have never been seen from the dawn of Islam to today, from Andalusia to the edges of Asia.
The Picasso Museum is located in one of the most beautiful ‘hôtels particuliers’ of the Marais district, the Hôtel Salé, which was built in the 17th century. The Picasso Museum is undergoing extension and renovation work until March 2012. When it re-opens it will exhibit 500 Picasso masterpieces.
