Nestled within the green fields of the Jardin d'Acclimatation in the Bois de Boulogne parklands on the west side of Paris, is LVMH magnate Bernard Arnault’s Frank Gehry-designed Fondation Louis Vuitton. Inside the building’s curving glass “sails”, 11 exhibition galleries host a wide range of temporary and permanent shows from the foundation's art collection. But before visiting this new cultural centre be sure to make a booking at Michelin-starred chef Jean-Louis Nomicos’ restaurant Le Frank, named after the building’s architect and serving up sophisticated Mediterranean fare. Save room for dessert conceived by Pastry World Champion Emmanuel Ryon.
Often dubbed the Upper East Side of Paris, the 16th arrondissement is an affluent neighbourhood on the Right Bank that houses some of the city’s most impressive museums including modern art space the Palais de Tokyo along with many Parisian sporting venues such as Roland Garros Stadium where the French Open is played.
