So, I love to shop and Paris is a great place to do it. Galeries Lafayette is not only pretty but every Designer you can think of is there. It was very fun to walk around and smell the money. I have been to Paris 6 times and always stop here, its just fun! I did break down and but... More

As most famous department stores so this is also huge and very well-stocked with goods from around the world! Of course, the department store as much known for its same content as it is unique - the courtyard has a fantastic glass roof and a tip is to get up on the roof terrace and enjoy a fantastic view over...

Galleries Lafayette is located at 40 Boulevard Haussmann in the 9th arrondissement on the Right Bank in central Paris. It is also located very close to the Opera Garnier and Printemps (another high end department store). There is a metro stop beneath the store which allows you to enter the store from below street level. Galleries Lafayette has several locations... More

One of my favourite memories of Paris is this store. Changed lots since my visit in 2007 in that the tea selection is significantly reduced however the roof top is now modernized and a great spot to watch sunset.

Any time in Paris and always a visit to Galeries Lafayette! This famous French department store is on business since 1895! What an amazing record! No matter how many adresses it already has in Paris, I don't even consider the possibility of not visiting its flagship store at Boulevard Haussmann (not far from another Paris' icon: the "Opéra Garnier"), which...

We were here soon after Christmas and the store was really crowded. There was a line to get into the Chanel store which I believe is quite standard. But the building interior is worth seeing. We enjoyed taking photos of the upside down Christmas tree. We didn't plan to shop. I don't think it would have been enjoyable given the... More

Gorgeous Parisian department store definitely worth visiting if near Haussmann Blvd. It's always on our list to visit when we're in Paris. Not just for shopping, but never tire of seeing the stunning architecture and the view of Paris from their rooftop (which is free!) We were there over the New Year and very much enjoyed their playful animated holiday... More

Like Printemps, Lagayette has many global brands. If you have member card (or borrow one from local friend), you could get the discount before the discount day. almost -40% off, -50%off, -60%off....Amazing

Just go inside this amazing building to see the decor, the ceiling and the balconies. It is really lovely. Expensive shops if you are in the mood to spend $$. The building's interior is worth a visit.

Large department store with a stunning glass dome. You can have a coffee under the dome. Also, go onto the roof to take in one of the best views of Paris without having to pay for it.
