The face of Paris underwent a transformation under the rule of Napoleon III. With Hausmann’s expertise in urban planning, Napoleon wished to modernise the city and improve traffic circulation, thus turning Paris into a European metropolis. The famous Bois Boulogne and Bois de Vincennes date back to this period.

The city of romance

Montmartre: the narrow alleyways are filled with flaneurs and couples strolling around, absorbing the atmosphere. Artists hover on street corners offering to sketch your portrait, music echoes in the bustling, narrow streets and the light from the street lamps reflects beautifully on the cobbled pavement. If you endeavour to climb what might seem like a never-ending set of steps, you will be rewarded at the top with one of the most breathtaking views of Paris.

Palatial paradise

The Place Vendôme: this building oozes luxury and really is any architect’s dream. A couple of doors down (21 Rue Cambon) also happens to be the place where Coco Chanel opened her salon. She died at the Ritz Hotel, one of the square’s most famous buildings.

Tourist track

The Avenue des Champs-Elysées: as soon as any touristssets foot in Paris, they usually strive towards the most famous avenue in the world: les Champs-Elysées. Many prestigious fashion houses have established their headquarters here. It’s most certainly worth a walk down to the Avenue Montaigne where you can enjoy a delicious cocktail at the Plaza Athénée.
