Take a 2-hour private guided walk to learn about the famous Haussmannian intervention, the largest urban planning feat ever undertaken in the city of Paris, France, Europe and possibly the entire world.
In the 19th century the whole city, with the exception of 2 neighborhoods, was flattened and built anew. The plan was designed to create the best planned, the most functional, and above all, the most beautiful city in the world. The program, however, took its toll on many precious buildings and streets that have been forever lost. What were the real reasons behind this controversial decision? Of famous artists and writers of the era, who was in favor, and who was bitterly against? What are the conspiracy theories surrounding the event? Find out in this guided private tour.
After you have taken this tour, you’ll never see the city of Paris with the same eyes again!
