World-famous porcelain factory
Métro Pont de Sèvres. Just by the main road to Chartres at Sèvres, the Musée National de Céramique de Sevres (www.sevresciteceramique.fr) offers a wonderful cavalcade of pottery and china through the ages and from across the globe. Needless to say, the wares of the famous royal porcelain factory (established in 1738) are much in evidence, but Oriental, Islamic and other European manufacturers are also displayed.
North across the Seine, the elegant terraced gardens of the Pare de Saint-Cloud afford fine views back towards the city.
