France – Arles, Roman and Romanesque Monuments

Flamingos, lace and Roman ruins are just some of the delights to be found on France’s cruise trail.

As Chanel kicks off a series of cruise shows in France, WWD provides a guide to the top attractions in each host city in France.


Grand Palais

In addition to hosting Karl Lagerfeld’s spectacular shows, which have featured by turns a replica of the Eiffel Tower, a space rocket and a waterfall, the Grand Palais is home to temporary exhibitions such as the FIAC international art fair, and a permanent museum that stages blockbuster shows, such as the 2009 exhibition “Picasso and the Masters,” which was seen by close to 800,000 people. Currently, visitors can catch “Kupka: Pioneer of Abstraction,” which provides an overview of early 20th-century Czech painter František Kupka’s career, alongside “Artists & Robots,” which showcases works by some 40 artists produced with the help of increasingly sophisticated robots.
