Complain all you will about the bureaucracy and weather in France. But you have to admit the country does right by its citizens (and visitors) culturally. As a result, the average French person is culturally sophisticated and curious.
The latest free treat for the eyes and ears: La Nuit Européenne des Musées. It takes place this Saturday, May 18. Scads of museums will be open late, and most, like the Maison de Victor Hugo, on Place des Vosges (pictured) for free.
Needless to say, there will be plenty of partying and flirting along with the art. You can download a PDF of the program here.
