Without a doubt, the 16th arrondissement has a posh reputation. The neighborhoods of Trocadero and La Muette are elegant, wealthy and conservative. The Passy neighborhood is lovingly called a village by Parisians and features chic shopping. Numerous stately art museums, impressive residences and villas bejewel the seizieme.
Bordered by the vast and popular Bois du Bologne park to the west, Palais de Chaillot overlooking the Eiffel tower to the east, and L'Etoile du Champs Elysees to the north, the 16th is situated in an exclusive Triangle du Bermuda. Start from the most scenic point of the 16th. From metro Trocadero (lines 6,9), make like Robert Doisneau and snap an iconic photo of the Eiffel Tower from the Place du Trocadero. Built in neoclassical style for the 1900 World's Fair, the Palais de Chaillot imitates the style of Catherine de Medici. The hub of the Place du Trocadero is a 3000 year old Egyptian obelisk that replaced a statue of Louis XV.
Take your morning tea at the exquisite patisserie Carette at the intersection of Place du Trocadero and Place du 11 Novembre. Immaculate rows of rainbow colored macarons wait at attention in jewel box cases. Pick up a pink and gold box as a souvenir, and try the macaron au chocolat, Carette's speciality.
Wednesdays and Saturdays from 7.00am to 3.00pm is the Marche President Wilson. On Avenue du President Wilson, between Rue Debrousse and the Place d'Iena, the gorgeous farmer's market is plentiful, colorful, and tidy. Make your way along the Avenue du President Wilson until the Iena metro station. Several diverse and excellent art museums are in the immediate vicinity. The Musee Guimet on the Place d'Iena has one of the most stunning collections of Asian art in the world, covering the East from China, Japan, Afghanistan, India and Southeast Asia.
Further down the Avenue du President Wilson are the Palais du Tokyo and Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris. Fraternal twins, the museums host contemporary and modern art exhibits respectively; the Palais du Tokyo focused on boundary-pushing current artists, the latter dedicated to art of the 20th century.
The incredible terrace between the two museums faces the Seine and Eiffel Tower with cafe tables between the marble columns. The Black Block concept store inside the Palais du Tokyo Concept is the brainchild of graffiti artist Andre and sells street art memorabilia and skater knick knacks.
Yet another museum within walking distance is the Galerie Baccarat. Yes. That Baccarat. Up the Avenue d'Iena and to the left on the Place des Etats-Unis you'll find a universe of crystal, designed by Philippe Starck.
Next, take the metro to La Muette (line 9). First stop is the megaâ€chic department store Frank et Fils. It is the only place to assemble your 16th arrondissement ensemble. Tastefully understated boutiques line Rue de Passy. Master chocolatier Regis at number 89 concocts his legendary chocolates fresh daily.
Just off the Rue de Passy is a charming pedestrian street. Following the direction of traffic from Frank et Fils on Rue de Passy, turn right on Rue Vital then a quick right on Rue de lâ€™Annonciation. Closed to cars, the street has cute cafÃ©s and food shops galore.
A must see for any serious shopper is Le Depot Vente de Passy. From the Rue de Passy, follow the direction of traffic for fifteen minutes until the Rue de la Tour and turn left. Le Depot Vente de Passy is widely known for its curated collection of lightly worn designer clothes. Suits, scarves, Lanvin dresses, YSL blouses, Dior, Lacroix: the list is as long as Vogue's September issue. Another depot vente a bit further out in the 16th is Reciproque, just next to metro Rue de la Pompe on the street of the same name.
On the western edge of Paris is the lung of the city-the Bois du Bologne. A public green area larger than Central Park, the Bois du Bologne is an excellent place for jogging, boating in its many lakes, picnicking, and horseback riding. After dark the forest becomes the seedy office of transvestites and ladies of the night.
Two notable establishments in the Bois du Bologne are the timeless Chinese tea room Salon de The de Mademoiselle Li and the three Michelin starred Le Pre Catelan which resides deep within the park.
The restaurant La Gare is, as its name suggests, a former train station. Think Grand Central Station rather than the Metro. The decor stylishly combines the original art deco with modern colors while keeping the menu up to the high standards of the seizieme. Throw in a tete a tete with the glittering Eiffel Tower in the background and La Gare is an easy winner.
The double Michelin starred gastrotemple L'Astrance speaks refinement in every sense. The small, discreet interior belies a restaurant well worthy of its accolades, created by protoges of Alain Passard (L'Arpege). L'Astrance is the apex of fine dining.
Finally, if you have extra time, make a pilgrimage out to the Fondation Le Corbusier by metro Jasmin (9). The iconic architect himself designed the residence, Maison La Roche. The foundation houses his original plans, documents, and personal possessions. The building exhibits hallmarks of Le Corbu; geometric forms, industrial detail, and dusty pink, cucumber, and beige color schemes.
The 16th means many things to different people. Luxury. Aristocracy. Legacy. Les biens eleves. Innate elegance. Trust fund kids. Home. Escape.
