“Be better to see inside”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

This is a landmark in Paris, but of course it is rare to get inside. Some great photos can be taken from the right angle from the outside, but be careful as it is a public building and it is often frowned upon to take photos of building like this.

“imposing façade at la Place de la Concorde”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Le Palais Bourbon, across from the Place de la Concorde, is the seat of the French National Assembly, the lower legislative chamber of the French government. The palace was constructed from 1722 to 1728. While you cannot get too close to the building itself, you can take a few minutes to walk around the outside and appreciate its impressive façade before moving on to explore all the sights of la Place de la Concorde just ahead of you.

“Imposing facade”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

Austere looking building with even more austere looking security personnel. You'll have to settle for a view from behind the fence. Very imposing fronting onto the river.

“worth a look”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

You've also got this listed under the old name of Palais Bourbon, confusing.I left my review there but to recap allow 15 mins to look at the facade, which is all you are allowed. Very imposing building so worth a detour on the way to the many attractions around it.
