Learn More About Belle Epoque France

The Belle Epoque, or "Beautiful Age," refers to a time period in France spanning from the beginning of the Third French Republic until the first World War. It was a time of peace, prosperity, innovation, and luxury across the country, especially in Paris. It was during this romantic and prosperous period that the Eiffel Tower, the Paris Metro, the Paris Opera, and the Basilica of Sacré-Cœur on Montmartre were built, surging France forward into the modern age and the approaching 20th century. 

As couture fashion houses, department stores, and tourism boomed alongside innovations in technology, art, and architecture, the demand for luxury products in the City of Lights grew among the wealthy and middle class alike.
