DISCOVERING THE 8th ARRONDISSEMENT OF PARIS
To help you prepare for your stay, VacationServices4You has put together a selection of the best museums and monuments, the most beautiful parks and gardens, and many ideas for visits in the most beautiful capital in the world.
What to do in the 8th arrondissement ? :
Parc Monceau : Straddling the 8th and 17th arrondissements of Paris, the Parc Monceau is one of the prettiest gardens in Paris. A place of pleasure and nature where original sculptures, exceptional architecture and abundant vegetation mix.
A green landscape surrounded by sumptuous private mansions with typically Parisian architecture. Created from scratch by the Pereire brothers, the Plaine Monceau was designed at the end of the 19th century to accommodate the upper middle class of the Second Empire. A flamboyant district which was renamed at that time the Little Venice of Paris…
Arc de Triomphe : Built at the request of Napoleon, the Arc de Triomphe is one of the most famous monuments in Paris. Apart from the purely aesthetic reasons, due to the beauty of the building and the panorama offered on the capital, and more particularly the Champs-Élysées, the Arc de Triomphe is also, and above all, an important historical symbol.
Located on the former Place de l’Étoile (named after the twelve avenues that surround the monument and form a star), now Place Charles de Gaulle, the Arc de Triomphe was built at the Emperor’s request in the aftermath of the famous Battle of Austerlitz (1805), considered to be Napoleon Bonaparte’s tactical and military “masterpiece”. The aim of the arch was to perpetuate the memory of the French army’s victories. The first stone was laid on 15 August 1806, and the monument was completed 30 years later, in 1836.
Petit Palais : The Petit Palais, which faces its “big brother” the Grand Palais, is a very nice museum to discover, both for the works on display and for the beauty of the building and its architecture.
Built for the Paris World Fair in 1900, the site has become a museum dedicated to the different artistic movements from Greek antiquity to the beginning of the 20th century.
