This is one of the shopping hot spots in Paris. It also has wonderful cafes and restaurants. The Louvre is close by. Lively place!

We stayed in the Opera district and enjoyed the close proximity to all attractions and top eating areas. Awesome place to be for shopping, food and public transport.

This is a busy place with tons of people almost all the time regardless, so be prepared. - First check out the Opera House and take some photos, grab a bite from any of the little cafe, sit on the steps and watch some performance if you have time. -Then head toward Gallery Lafayette, and check out the largest department...

The opera house is really nice from the outside and the architecture style is followed by the surrounding buildings so it blends in really nicely. There is a large shopping center around the opera house and there are many restaraunts with great food as well. When I was in the area there were musicians playing in front of the opera... More

Great location! Loads to do & see within walking distance. Fabulous if you have unlimited shopping funds (sadly we didn't!)

The Opera building is artistically amazing, the area is full of shops and people. Pretty nice location and sometimes you can see the students of the music academy playing outside the building.

The exterior is stunning but the exterior is magnificent . You must do this tour . We found the grand gallery to be mire spectacular than the hall of mirrors in Versailles. Though there was no operatic performance when we visited the ambiance was superb . Wish I had visited this masterpiece on previous visits to Paris

The Opera Quarter is just north of Tuilleries Quarter. This district has a few points of interest for visitors and famous department store shops as well. Important attractions in this area include La Madeleine church, which is dedicated to Mary Magdalene and is easily recognisable with its Corinthian columns, which encircle the church building. The other famous attraction in the... More

If you start going north-east from the center of the map on this page, you'll find yourself in the Sentier area. There you will find the wholesale garment district of Paris (though most of the designer and other shops have hand-written signs saying "No Retail"), streets sprinkled with the weirdest and most hideous-looking prostitutes in the Universe, and some good...

And at Christmas time a wonderful place just to wander and see the lights. You will eventually reach the major stores where the lights are a major highlight of a December trip to Paris.
