The park could be saved in a better way, but still it's interesting to be visited. The Geode is without any doubt it's nicest spot.

Parc de la villette is the place where you can come and see facts of life. You walk around and enjoy the architectural lines of the buildings outside and physical demonstrations of facts inside. Be ready to spend enough time to explore all items.

museum, this area rewards daytime and nighttime
explorations; there are three concert spaces, plus
cinemas and bars, and even open-air cinema in the
summer. The surrounding homes are a sharp contrast to
