Two beautiful, typically Parisian covered markets. We stop there to discover the range of fresh and local products (for the Saint Martin market, we also discover flavors from elsewhere) but also to taste or have a drink in a bistro atmosphere. Friendly places, where life is good with simplicity.
True temples of shopping, Printemps and Galeries Lafayette are the must-see stores on Boulevard Haussmann. Their legendary Art-Deco glass roofs house the most prestigious fashion brands. For a shopping session or a simple curiosity visit, the Department Stores know how to delight their public.
Our tip: the breathtaking view of the Opéra Garnier from the rooftop of the Galeries Lafayette, which also houses a restaurant.
Typically Parisian, this chic and trendy district is home to the most confidential addresses of designers, big brands and thrift stores. This is a must have for any fashion fan, who will receive the most cutting edge style advice. To take a break, a detour to Place des Vosges offers a charming historical setting.
Ideal for affordable shopping, the Rue de Rivoli stretches all the way to Place de la Concorde. It offers a pleasant setting for combining a stroll through the heart of Paris with window shopping. There are plenty of cafés along the way.
If the weather is not fine, you can do your shopping in Les Halles, the famous shopping centre in Châtelet.
With more than 3,000 second-hand dealers, this space is one of the largest antiques places in the world. Composed of several markets each specializing in one area, the Puces are a real playground for those who enjoy digging in to find bargains and rare gems. Antique furniture, clothes, vinyls and various objects will make you happy.
