Rue de Rivoli
is one of the most famous streets of Paris
, a commercial street whose shops include the most fashionable names in the world. It bears the name of Napoleon's early victory against the Austrian army, at the battle of Rivoli
, fought January 14 and 15, 1797.
The new street that Napoleon Bonaparte pierced through the heart of Paris took for one side the north wing of the Louvre
, which Napoleon extended, and the Tuileries Gardens
. For the first time ever, a handsome, regular, wide street would face the north wing of the old palace.
