The Petit Palais; a treasure nestled in the heart of the 8th arrondissement
Situated on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées, near the Avenue Montaigne and the Arc de Triomphe, the Petit Palais is a building of dazzling beauty that was constructed for the 1900 Exposition Universelle, a world’s fair held in Paris. With its large windows, its colossal sculptures and its impressive gilding, this Beaux-Arts building emanates a classic beauty guaranteed to lift up the spirit.
Today, the Petit Palais houses the Museum of Fine Arts of the City of Paris, and this summer offers a magnificent exhibition featuring the French Impressionists who sought refuge from political turmoil in late-19th century London. After admiring these superb paintings, you’ll be ready to relax in the Café Le Jardin of the Petit Palais and enjoy a drink in an unusual setting.
