This year the Nuit Blanche 2012 in Paris si going to be a promenade from East to West.
On saturday October 6th 2012 the city of Paris will offer you a completely new route: a meandering line that crosses Paris from West to East, from Chaillot hill to Ivry-sur-Seine.
Laurent Le Bon, director of Metz Pompidou Center is for this time the director of this new edition. His proposal is an invitation to explore the architecture of the city in all its contemporary complexity, and an opportunity for the public to enjoy, for the first time, belvederes, vantage points over the city that are usually not accessible but allow to take a glimpse at unfamiliar views of Paris and the Seine...
