In the heart of Paris, on the Champs-Élysées, the Grand Palais is one of the most iconic Parisian monuments. Built for the 1900 Exposition Universelle, it is recognisable by its large glass dome flanked by the French flag.

Entering the Nave of the Grand Palais is awe-inspiring: the monumental entrance, the grand staircase, a masterpiece of the Art Nouveau style, the exceptional size, the architectural feat, all the hard work of the architect Henri Deglane continues to inspire fascination and admiration. Since its opening, the Grand Palais has hosted countless events: art salons, horse shows with the famous Saut Hermès, prestigious fashion shows as well as events as varied as a huge funfair or a giant ice rink during the festive season.
