Designed in 1899 by Jules Lavirotte, one of the best known Art Nouveau architects in Paris, this building now houses an Italian secondary school. In French, it is called le Lycée Italien Léonard-de-Vinci and is one of the architect's first works, though a little less bold than some of his later design. Here, Lavirotte applied Art Nouveau motifs to a largely Baroque building design. This building is hard to find as it is located in a small street that branches from rue Saint-Dominique in the 7e arrondissement, not too far from les Invalides and la Tour Eiffel.

Address: 12, rue Sédillot, Paris 7e
Directions: Near les Invalides and rue Saint Dominique
