"Rue de Rivoli" Walking Tip by MM212
Walking, Paris: 261 reviews and 509 photos
Named after the battle of Rivoli, where Napoléon defeated the Austrian army, rue de Rivoli runs through the heart of Paris. The arcaded street extends from place de la Concorde and leads to rue Saint-Antoine and place de la Bastille, passing by le Louvre, le Marais, and Hotel de Ville. The street was created as part of the urban planning of the 18th and 19th century that shaped Paris into the beautiful metropolis it is today. Today, the street is a strange mix of cheap tourist souvenir shops and some of Paris's most expensive shopping labels.
