Therefore it is always advisable to consult the agenda of museums in Paris, where by the way reopened a few months ago the unique Albert Khan Photography Center. Outside the French capital we also highlight for this summer the exhibitions “La Gioconda, inverse exhibition”, at the Palais de la Bourse in Marseille, and “Picasso, the effervescence of forms”, at the Cité du Vin in Bordeaux.A good way to conclude the summer will be participating in the European Heritage Days, whose 39th edition will be held in 2022 on September 17 and 18. This is an opportunity to visit emblematic buildings in France, which will be exceptionally open on those days, offering guided tours and special events.
