About Boulevard Haussmann
The finest of the many Boulevards of Paris this grand tree
lined avenue is named after Baron Haussmann himself who oversaw the
construction of the Boulevards of Paris as part of the modernization
ordered by Emperor Napoleon III.
Today the Road is best know for its grand shopping, including
the two greatest Department Stores on earth, Printemps and Galeries
Lafayette. Often also visited for the Museum and the Opera it
is a fine street to browse, to shop, to drink and to eat and always
of course watch the fashionable people of Paris walk past!
Incredibly to us there was never a website dedicated to this grand
avenue and so in the bold traditions of the internet we have decided to
create him. So this is intended to be a FastFacts guide to just
the essential information needed to enjoy the delights of Boulevard
Haussmann, in Paris!
