Between 1855 and 1900, Paris hosted no less than five universal exhibitions, which attracted millions of visitors and saw the construction of various monuments. Paris witnessed a succession of ephemeral buildings, but some were so popular that they were saved for posterity.
We will discover the famous saved buildings through a stroll which will take us from the Champs-Elysées to Trocadéro. The use of modern materials at the time (reinforced concrete or cast iron), the Art Déco façades will be some of the highlights of our walking tour.
Catherine will lead this amazing architectural and historical stroll!
