In context : Back to the XIXth century at the West of Paris
(From : Passy's Artesian Well). Exit the Square Lamartine through Victor-Hugo avenue, northbound. Make a detour through Saint-Didier street to the right, the Lauriston street to the left, and finally Copernic street to the right. Then reach the very smart Victor-Hugo square. On Lauriston street, you will have come across, at number 74 ter, one of the 5th remaining palm game (the ancestor of modern tennis) hall in France. FInally, from Victor-Hugo square, take Burgeaud avenue towards Porte Dauphine.
Inaugurated on December 13, 1900, line 2 of the metro was then ending as close as Étoile station (now called Charles-de-Gaulle-Étoile).
One of the entrance of Porte-Dauphine station - the one at the Place des Généraux du Trentinian, on the even-numbered side of Foch avenue - is Art Nouveau master Hector Guimard's work. Hence of its aerial shape, it was nicknamed "the dragonfly".
