Le Quartier de Chaillot

     This area of Paris still carries the mark of World Expos past. The Expos majestically transformed the shape of this little neighborhood on a hill along the Seine, where Napoleon dreamed of building a palace for his son. During the Third Republic the first Chaillot Palace was built for the 1871 expo. In 1937, the architects Carlu, Azema, and Boileau built the current Chaillot Palace facing the Eiffel Tower. The monuments' different elements work together in harmony. The neighborhood is rich with different museums and embassies, which characterize perfectly the luxury of this area.
