Tours

The European Parliament, together with the Council of the European Union and the European Commission exercises the legislative function of the EU.

Informative visits of the parliament are organised for groups that last around an hour that include a general introduction by an EP official to the role and work of the European Parliament.  On occasion, this could be followed by a discussion with an MEP if parliamentary business allows.
When the European Parliament is in session, groups may be able to observe MEPs' debates 'live' from the visitors' gallery.
