Alma Marceau: a chic district in the "triange d'or" ("golden triangle"). Alma-Marceau is a historic district that has become the place to be seen for stars and young, trendy Parisians. A chic, trendy district in the heart of Paris Halfway between the Champs-Élysées and the Eiffel Tower, Alma-Marceau is now among Paris's most exclusive districts. Stars and businesspeople can be found sipping a coffee or enjoying an after-work drink. Avenue Montaigne is lined with many of the capital's luxury and haute couture boutiques: Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, Nina Ricci, Chanel, and more. Together with Avenue des Champs-Élysées and Avenue George V, Alma Marceau is part of Paris's "triange d'or" ("golden triangle"). You will find mainly high-end stores, banks, embassies and luxury hotels such as the 5 star Plaza Athénée. Stars meet up at the Café des Théâtres on Avenue Montaigne, while bohemian types favor Bert's, a contemporary café on Avenue du Président Wilson. Many visitors can't resist a visit to the famous Crazy Horse Saloon, a well-known erotic cabaret copied the world over. An emphasis on history and art The Pont de l'Alma, built by Napoleon III in 1856, leads to the left bank of the Seine. The famous Alma tunnel, where Princess Diana met her untimely end in 1997, also runs through the district. On Place de l'Alma, the Flame of Liberty, a gift from the United States to France in 1989, has become a place where people come to pay their respects to the late princess. Despite its age, Alma-Marceau is a happening district where some of Paris's major museums can be found, including the Palais de Tokyo (modern and contemporary art) and the Musée du Quai Branly (African, Asian, Oceanic, and Native American art). On the left bank of the Seine, near the Pont de l'Alma, the Musée des Egouts Parisiens (Paris Sewer Museum) offers a less glamorous but equally extraordinary visit!
