This will not have escaped the shoppers, nor the lovers of history and architecture: we are 15 minutes walk from Galeries La Fayette. Inaugurated in 1894, this Haussmannian jewel symbolises the changes happening at the time, when department stores were revolutionising shopping. The centrepiece of this Parisian institution, the cupola dominates the 9th arrondissement from the top of its 33 m height. Raise your head to admire the stained glass before climbing up to enjoy the panorama of Paris and the Eiffel Tower from the terrace.
Over its 5 floors, the shops stocks the most prestigious names. After having covered the 3,000 m² of shoes and the Bordeauxthèque, a huge cellar of Bordeaux wine, you will have really earned a break for a cappucino, some sushi or even a glass of champagne. An elegant town within the most elegant of cities, Galeries La Fayette has some twenty cafes, bars and restaurants.
