Printemps Hausmmann Guided Tour
If you've read 'Au bonheur des Dames' by Émile Zola, you'll already have some idea of what a Paris department store is like, and on this tour, you'll be able to find out if Printemps Haussmann lives up to her famous magical descriptions.
Your guide will be waiting for you at the entrance and will lead you through the store's most emblematic places and you'll have VIP access to its secret corners and hidden spots.
First of all, you'll discover the magnificent storefront that is listed as a French Heritage Site and an exquisite example of architecture from Haussmann's Second Empire. The guide will then explain the history of this department store, inaugurated in 1865 by Jules Jaluzot, and all about its avant-garde design.
As you listen to the guide's fascinating comments, you'll discover both the major stories and fascinating little anecdotes about this place of luxury and dreams. You'll venture into areas that are closed to the public, such as the grand balconies around the dome and the winding maze of the basement, where many renowned craftsmen and technicians work every day to produce luxury, elegance and fashion. You'll taste the authentic Parisian chic in the air.
