The Grand Palais in Paris is the iconic monument of the Rmn-GP, where we showcase our biggest exhibitions to best advantage in its vast spaces. We also host events organized by others, such as FIAC, Paris Photo, catwalk shows during Fashion Week...more
Couldn't wait to see this structure, knowing that it's one of the original buildings left over from the turn of the 20th century Exposition. It's gorgeous! Easy to imagine the awe felt by its very first guests.
Admittedly I'm a little biased since I'm a fan of engineering project of that epoch, but the Grand Palais really is an exceptional piece of architecture independent of what exhibition is taking place at the moment.
I live in Paris and I just love this...More
We kept running into this fantastic looking building en route to other attractions. We didn’t even know of its importance and wasn’t on our list of things to do. We noticed it from the Seine River cruise as well so we decided to check it...More

This area is characterized by its namesake avenue which extends northwest from the Louvre to the modern business district, punctuated by the iconic Arc de Triomphe.

This
neighborhood never rests, buzzing with visitors from around the world at all times of day and night, all within a stone's throw of the Seine.
We've only seen the nave during an event or exhibition in the main central space. Since it is used often it is either in a state of setting up or taking down. Suggest you try to gain entry through the rear and ask for... More
