Subject of the visit
The area around the Opera Garnier became a hub of culture, drawing artists, intellectuals, and the Parisian elite. The opera house’s grandeur and association with high society contributed to the district’s prestige. In the 20th century, the district retained its cultural significance. It was witness to various historical events and continued to be a symbol of Parisian elegance.
To feel that, we will walk to Place Vendôme, which was initially laid out in the early 17th century as part of a royal square designed by Louis XIV’s chief architect, Jules Hardouin-Mansart. The square was originally called Place Louis le Grand and was designed to celebrate the military victories of Louis XIV
Place Vendôme became synonymous with luxury and elegance. The square became a focal point for high-end fashion, jewelry, and prestigious hotels, as the Ritz Hotel.
Today, both the Opera District and Place Vendôme are vibrant parts of Paris, attracting visitors with their rich history, cultural significance, and associations with elegance and luxury.
