The experience
  • Learn more about the history and symbolism of Art Nouveau in Paris

Full description
Stroll the streets of Paris on a private guided tour to learn about the most important Art Nouveau landmarks, as well as the history of the Belle Epoque. The most prominent architectural style at the turn of the 19th and 20th century, Art Nouveau is famous for its elegance and innovation. Embraced by the wealthy, it is synonymous with opulence and refined beauty. You will start your walk at the very roots of the Art Nouveau movement, before continuing to the mature period, observing its various inspirations, and the surprising influences it had on the later periods. Visit the Gothic Revivalist Hotel Gaillard, and admire the decorative entrance to a Metro station. Take a peek at the Russian Orthodox Church of Saint Alexander, and marvel at the Art Deco façade of the Ceramic Hotel near the Arc de Triomphe. Your guide will take you to a flamboyant house by the architect Jules Lavirotte on Avenue Rapp, show you the imposing American Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, and won’t neglect the iconic Eiffel Tower!

Guide très sympatique et passionné, dans l'échange, et avec beaucoup de connaissances... Tout le groupe a été enchanté (8 personnes entre 15 ans et 52 ans). Petit bémol dû à la date de notre visite, le 14 juillet, donc avec des restrictions de déplacement et du bruit avec les blindés qui passaient derrière nous... Nous sommes restés dans le quartier de la tour Eiffel où nous avons vu de très belles façades richement décorées... Expérience à renouveler, pourquoi pas dans un autre quartier de Paris ou sur une autre thématique architecturale
