guided tour The New Athens
The Square d'Orléans

Square d’Orléans

Presentation :

It is one of the best preserved and least known districts of Paris. New Athens attracted the whole of Paris under the Empire and the Restoration : generals, financiers, but especially painters, actors,
writers, all want to live in this new district at the same time peaceful and rural.

We will meet the famous actors Talma, Miss Mars and
Miss Duchesnois, the writers George Sand, Alexandre Dumas and Victor Hugo, the painters Ary Scheffer, Horace Vernet and Paul Delaroche,
the composers Frederic Chopin and Richard Wagner, the singer Pauline Viardot.

Secret gardens, hidden squares, small neo-classical houses, this picturesque and surprisingly well-preserved area offers many
surprises.
