Paris: rue de Castiglione !

So here I am telling you about some of my other favorites streets of my eternal Paris. Of course, there are plenty others in my blog, just let your fingers do the search. Here I will tell you about a very special street in my Paris. This is my story on the rue de Castiglione!

The rue de Castiglione is a street in the quartier Place-Vendôme of the 1éme arrondissement. This street honors the victory won by General Napoleon Bonaparte over the Austrians on August 5, 1796 at Castiglione delle Stiviere. On October 9, 1801, the Consuls of the French Republic decide: Article 1. A street will be drilled in line with that of Place Vendôme, on the Feuillants and Manège grounds to the Tuileries terrace. Article 2. The surrounding houses and land, made available to the government by law December 14, 1795, will be sold by auction through the estate management, with the responsibility of the purchasers to build on the plans and facades given by the government architect , etc. The first Consul, signed Napoleon Bonaparte. The street took its current name as soon as it opened. Metro Tuileries line 1 or Concorde lines 1 8 12.

Some of the main things for me to see here are at No. 3: The Marriott Westin Paris – Vendôme hotel (this was the old Intercontinental Paris Hotel or L’Inter as we called it, where my hotel management job was base)  No 7: the Le Lotti hotel which is located on the site of the former Jacobin convent. No 10: the Countess of Castiglione. No 14: the famous restaurant Le Carré des Feuillants, directed by chef Alain Dutournier from the Relais & Châteaux chain, restaurant awarded the Michelin Guide. Also located at this address is Maison Agry, a heraldic engraving company.


This is the new Hotel page and the first picture has not change much from when I was there…souvenirs of my Paris: Paris tourist office on the Westin Vendome Hotel

As already have a post on my Intercontinental hotels association I wont repeat them here just do the search in my blog. The rue de Castiglione is a short street full of wonders architecturally,historically, and as said personal with still many friends there who are in touch and probably will read this post; it is basically for them.

The street starts at the rue de Rivoli side with the wonderful Jardin des Tuileries and goes to the rue Saint Honoré just before the Place Vendôme. Do not forget to get into the macarons of Ladurée here!!! My outings were basically on the other side on Café L’Impérial, Le Mont Thabor, Le Soufflé restos. One curiosity for me from my Brazilian experience is the H Stern jewellers store here too! This is of course a very chic area of my Paris. You are welcome!

Hope you like this brief walk in my rue de Castiglione ,old hangout with many memories or the walk is short, the memories are long. This is my Paris and lucky to see often still today.

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!
