Pace de la Madeleine is very pretty, but we just visited because of Laduree. It was very busy when we were there, after lunch. Didn't spend much time here.

This place is lined with some great little shops selling everything from coffee to caviar. Well worth exploring through them and taking some photos of the Madeleine from different angles.

Lovely hotel in amazing location. Small yet comfortable rooms but that's Paris. Metro is close but has many stairs.

Located between Avenue des Champs-Elysees and the famous Rue du Faubourg Saint-HonoreA gastronomy landmark. Styled like a Greek temple in 1842. SHops extraordinaire surround this area. From Fachon that began in 1880. Other famous food shops nearby. Packed with shoppers and concerts in summer months. On the top ten things to see in Paris.

The huge stairs that lead to the church's main entrance on the south side offer one of the most memorable views in Paris: down... More

The Place de Madeleine was easy to find. It was just a few blocks away from the obelisque. It looked majestic but we didn't go in cause it looked crowded.
