Who doesn’t want to spend April in Paris? SAA members will have the opportunity for a week-long stay in the City of Light joining the very popular SAA speaker and scholar, Dr. Julian Brown, to explore a variety of Asian art collections following an itinerary put together by Conley & Silvers, the premiere travel agency that organized the SAA’s very successful Indochina trip this past January.

Staying in a luxurious five star hotel in the heart of Paris, SAA travelers will be a short stroll from many of the best museums, sites and shops in the city. Packed with privatizations, enjoy exclusive after-hours visits to the Musée Guimet (one of the largest collections of Asian art in Europe), Musée Cernuschi, and The Pagoda Paris. Outside of Paris, visit Chateau Fontainebleau and with privileged access, explore private rooms not seen by the general public as well as Empress Eugenie's Asian art collection of over 1200 pieces. Take in several other outstanding Asian art collections, including a specially arranged visit to newly opened Musée Ennery, Musée de Quai Branly, and the Albert Kahn Museum & Garden, which showcases rare photographs from the early 20th century, as well as Japanese gardens with exotic plants from around the globe. Immerse yourself in the world of ceramics at Sèvres with a curator-led tour of their Asian collection and a private visit to their innovative atelier. Indulge in the best of French cuisine with carefully curated dining experiences and exclusive receptions in multiple museums. Attend a glamorous farewell dinner cruise viewing the banks of the Seine, a UNESCO World Heritage site, from our own intimate riverboat. This exquisite itinerary is sure to wow SAA travelers no matter if this is your first or fiftieth trip to Paris.
