What a strange Parc, such a huge contrast with the old part around the seine. You have lots of space, modern architecture, even a Submarine. The walk next to the seine starting at juares is also worth the effort

La Villette
This futuristic landscape has come to define the
northeast of Paris. The Saint-Denis canal is framed
with luscious lawns and metallic buildings over a
wide-open space. Home to Europe's largest science
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
