OVERVIEW

WHAT TO EXPECT

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 Nouveau 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!
