The opulent façade of the Opéra Garnier stands proudly in the center of this bustling Paris district, renowned for its large department stores (Galeries Lafayette, Printemps), covered passages, and malls. Welcome to the Parisian shopping heaven — one that can turn quite hellish before Christmas! Making it even busier, the neighborhood also hosts many corporate offices and bank headquarters. Fortunately, numerous on-the-go eateries, cafés, and brasseries can be found in the surrounding streets, making it easy to take a short break from the rush or keep your energy up during a shopping craze.
