Art Nouveau, Art Déco : on the trace of the Passy old village
View date


In the shadow of The Trocadéro and the Eiffel Tower, the west of the 16th arrondissement of Paris is less known. Yet Passy is overflowing with buildings signed by famous architects like Hector Guimard, Auguste Perret, Robert Mallet-Stevens, Le Corbusier, Pierre Patout...

This parisian district was a place where wealthy social class gave architects free rein to assert themselves in these buildings. The result is beyond compare and your guide, Guillaume Le Roux is here to show it to you!

He will point out the hill of Passy and Chaillot Palace and while you will saounter through the Art Nouveau and Art Deco works of art, he will tell you about illustrious french authors, like Balzac, Proust and Maupassant who lived here.

What is striking in this visit is the calm and tranquility that clearly make the difference in comparison to the touristic arrondissements of Paris.

If you are a fan of parisian achitecture and particularly Art Deco and Art Nouveau, come check the other visit of Le Vrai Paris, in the village of Auteuil, another district in the 16th arrondissement of Paris.
