From the Romans to the latest modern innovations, Paris architecture covers almost 2000 years of history. The city, once surrounded by a succession of walls, grew from the center towards the outskirts, developing through a spiral fashion. In fact, the most noticeable and historical buildings of the city are still in its very heart. It was François I who imported the elegance of the Renaissance in France. The classical era is one of the most brilliant of Paris’s history, followed by the Rococo and the Neo Classicism. Major changes occurred during the times of Napoleon and Haussmann.

We will explore Paris architecture, its evolution throughout the ages, citing a large number of examples, explaining their architectural specificities, and rediscover the famous ‘city of lights’.
