These are a few of our favourite places, and we recommend you book in advance to avoid the queues:
Fondation Louis Vuitton – a remarkable 2014 Frank Gehry building with a wonderful art collection
Musée Jacquemart André – 158 Boulevard Haussman – former home of wealthy private collectors with a superb collection of art and sculpture. If you like the Frick in New York, you’ll love this. The 80 bus takes you right there.
Musée Nissim Camondo, 63 rue Monceau, another wonderful former stately home, left to the state together with all its art and furniture. A sad story, but a simply amazing collection put together when living in the Parc Monceau was for the über-rich…
If you’re travelling with children, don’t miss the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie. Parents love it, too. A great day’s outing.

Au Bon Accueil, our favourite local restaurant, 14, rue de Montessuy, about 5 minutes’ walk away. Prix fixe menu at 35 euros is amazing value, and booking is essential especially in summer. Last time we were there, so was famous Japanese-French designer Kenzo. The chef is also Japanese, but the cuisine is a marvellous fusion of the best of both.
