I keep a travel journal with me and noted that this area had many unique and interesting to see alleys. The area has much more indeed to offer besides alleys but everyone has already told you about them, but the alleys are what caught my...More
Very central neighborhood and one of my favorites, not so much because of the sites, but because of the street life. Lots of cafes and restaurants, many with reasonable prices. Youthful. But don't miss the covered passages.

Stayed here many times and will return as this area is in the middle of it all. Also very lively with a great cafe and restaurant selection. The food market on Rue Montorgueil. The covered passages. Lots of beautiful historic buildings. Rue Reamur!
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
