Le Quartier de Chaillot
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.
