The Grand Palais is turning its focus to Venice, the city known as ‘La Serenissima’, by way of a glowing tribute to the role of the arts in the floating city, both past and present. The painters Piazzetta and Giambattista Tiepolo; Canaletto, the painter of views; the sculptors Corradini and Brustolon and the composers Porpora, Hasse and Vivaldi all contributed to the beauty and the ethos of a culture enamoured of the visual arts, the decorative arts and the opera. A treasure trove of paintings, sculptures, drawings and performances to be enjoyed over the course of a few weeks.

Grand Palais

The Grand Palais is one of the most iconic Parisian monuments. Built for the 1900 Exposition Universelle, it is recognizable by its large glass dome flanked by the French flag. This architectural masterpiece of stone, steel and glass has been listed as a historical monument since 2000. It comprises 3 major sites: the Nave, the National Galleries and the Palais de la Découverte. The majestic nave, 240 m long, welcomes a wide variety of major national and international events: (horse riding, contemporary art, fairground, etc.). The national galleries organize large-scale exhibitions on artists that have marked the history of art (Picasso, Hopper, Renoir, etc.). The Palais de la Découverte is a museum and cultural centre dedicated to science, where children can learn whilst having fun, through permanent collections and temporary exhibtions. A 3-in-1 site that's not to be missed, close to the Champs-Elysées.
