As the control centre for Europe, found it interesting to visit. Metro stops right outside. Quite at weekends.

I visited at one of the times specified on the website for the hemicycle visits. I didn’t pre-book as I was alone but I think it’s probably worth booking if you’re in a group. When I arrived it was quite busy and we did have...More

Wow in around the European Parliament was immaculate, the homeless people were a bit out of place. Shows where a lot of the money went as the building was superb.
