When you visit the Institut du Monde Arabe, don’t miss out on a free view of Paris. Take the glass lift to the 9th floor and you’ll be treated to panoramic views over the Seine.
From the open terrace, you can enjoy a sweeping view which includes Notre-Dame de Paris, Ile-de-la-Cité, Ile-St-Louis as well as the top of Centre Pompidou and the column of the Bastille. Or you can simply marvel at the rooftops that are so quintessentially Paris.

The terrace of the Institut du Monde Arabe is also home to Restaurant Le Zyriab, serving Lebanese gastronomies with a range of Lebanese wines such as Chateau Musar. With seating inside or outside, you can lunch or dine with Paris at your feet or simply enjoy a mint tea in the afternoon.
