Beneath the golden cupola of the L’Académie française and close to the prestigious Académie des Beaux-Arts, our visit will take you to a section of Saint-Germain-des-Prés with a long tradition in the arts. You’ll see top galleries representing modern and contemporary art, plus galleries specializing in antiques, Art Deco, Fifties furniture and contemporary furniture. This mix of history, art and design is a delight for any art lover or anyone interested in learning more about the arts.
