Most often on trips, I am anxious to find all the top things to do because I love exploring. However, we had a free night and so we just strolled around. It was peaceful and quiet, except for Galeries Lafayette, of course. Although it was...More

The area around the Opera House is one of the most congested in the city. The Galleries Lafayette is an amazing shopping center but it can tend to be claustrophobic. The whole area is well worth visiting with lots of great shopping, cafes, etc. Even...More

This Arrondissement is one of our favorites. The hotels, Opera, Galeries Lafayette, Printemps, restaurants etc. It is beautiful and lovely to stay and experience. Transportation to and from the area is simple and direct.

This is a beautiful district of Paris, where shopaholics would have the time of their lives. For the rest of us, though, it's possible to enjoy this district by strolling through its beautiful and classic buildings.

Opera / Bourse
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
