What you'll do

The Art Nouveau movement blossomed during the early 1900’s “Belle Epoque” and spread across art, design, jewelry, furniture and even architecture. In France, Hector Guimard was one of the most leading figures of Art Nouveau. The most beautiful metro entrances in Paris are the creations of this visionary Architect.

We will wander through the “chic” and gorgeous 16th “arrondissement” where Guimard lived and built superb Art Nouveau townhouses and buildings. You will see private townhouses such as Hôtel Guimard, Hôtel Mezzara, Hôtel Jassédé, Hôtel Déron-Levent, the famous Castel Béranger and many other apartment buildings and metro entrances built by Hector Guimard. You will also see Art Déco buildings and learn to differentiate the two styles.

If you have a camera with wide angle and zoom, this is the opportunity to dust it off!
Prepare for a feast for the eyes!

DETAILS: Adapted to all ages. Approx. 2hrs & 3,5Km/2Mi. Walk runs rain or shine.

Hi, I’m Thierry!

History has been my passion since I was a teenager. My purpose is to make history entertaining and to show the human side of historical figures. I love sharing the little anecdotes behind the major events and I enjoy revealing the secrets of Paris hidden in the major landmarks or in the nooks and crannies.

Having spent 16 years in the US and the UK gives me the hindsight to approach historical events with different perspectives, along with a knowledge drawn from a lifetime of attending history talks, courses, exhibitions, tours and reading hundreds of books.

So come time travel with me on my Historic Walks and Online Experiences on the Fathers of the American Revolution in Paris, the French Revolution, Napoleon, the Top 10 Jewels Landmarks of Paris and the stunning Art Nouveau Architecture!
