Fun fact :
Napoleon the 3rd asked the Haussmann reeve to create the Avenue de l'Opéra, which was not originally part of the new urban plans. Delighted that such a beautiful perspective highlights his monument, the architect asked that no tree be planted on the edges of the avenue so that nothing disturbs the sight of passers-by! Until this day, you won’t find any trees on the avenue.
