Description

Every year, since 1903, the Salon d'Automne has been held in Paris. After the Petit Palais, this art exhibition, created by the Belgian Frantz Jourdain, now takes place at the Grand Palais on the Champs-Elysées. It was first designed to offer opportunities to young artists and to bring the Impressionist movement to a wider audience. Why autumn? Because this allowed French and foreign artists to paint small scale works outdoors in the summer and then show them at this exhibition. Today, all the arts are represented: paintings, sculptures, photographs, prints, drawings, books on artists, the applied arts ...

Avenue des Champs-Élysées

Frequently described as ‘the world’s most beautiful avenue’, the Avenue des Champs-Élysées is a Paris must-see. Tourists and Parisians can be spotted strolling at any time of day or night and at any time of year along this iconic two-kilometre stretch between the Place de la Concorde and the Arc de Triomphe. Like the Eiffel Tower, the avenue is a symbol of Paris. It is lined with restaurants (l’Atelier Renault, Ledoyen etc.), luxury boutiques (Louis Vuitton, Mont-Blanc, Guerlain, Ferrari etc.), flagship stores (Banana Republic, Abercrombie, Sephora etc.) and nightclubs. It is also the setting each year for major events such as the Bastille Day military parade, the arrival of the Tour de France and the Christmas lights. Finally, the Avenue des Champs-Elysées has some of the top museums in Paris: the Grand Palais, the Petit Palais, the Palais de la Découverte and the Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton. Round off your visit by climbing all the way to the top of the Arc de Triomphe for a spectacular view of Paris!
