8th Arrondissement (Champs-Élysées)
This public museum, just a 15-minute walk from the Arc de Triomphe, was once the home of art collector Édouard André and his wife, painter Nélie Jacquemart. The 19th-century mansion, which features marble staircases, private apartments, and landscaped grounds, opened as a museum in 1913, displaying the couple’s collection of more than 6,000 artworks. The exhibits include pieces by Italian Renaissance artists Bellini and Botticelli, Dutch masters Rembrant and Van Dyck, and 18th-century French painters Boucher and Fragonard. Not as big or as busy as other local museums, the Jacquemart-Andrè offers an unrushed experience complete with free audio guides.
Don’t miss the chance to dine at the on-site café, which features Belgian tapestries, a fresco by Tiepolo, and an adjacent terrace overlooking the formal courtyard.
