3 Perfectly Restored Paris Landmarks
Any trip to Paris must include visiting these three beautifully restored landmarks in the city center.
BOURSE DE COMMERCE PINAULT COLLECTION
French industrialist Francois Pinault’s highly regarded contemporary and modern art collection arrives in Paris at the spectacularly reimagined Paris Bourse. The historic rotonda-shaped building dates from 1812-1889. The Pinault Collection includes works by an international spectrum of famous artists and creators.
LA SAMARITAINEThe historic La Samaritaine Department Store in central Paris has reopened after being closed for 15 years. LVMH and DFS have created a new multi-level luxury shopping experience designed around the building’s grand atrium. With this new chapter in its history, La Samaritaine’s south side, which faces the Seine, is now the luxuriously appointed hotel, the Cheval Blanc.
HOTEL DE LA MARINE
Enjoy some of the finest examples of French decorative arts at the newly restored Hotel de la Marine, located on Place de la Concorde. The building was once the Garde-Meuble de la Couronne, which was the royal institution that managed the King’s furniture. For 200 years, it was the French Navy’s headquarters.
