Lots of wonderful sixteen-seventeenth century architecture with an occasional eatery and some fine dinning. Wear your walking shoes and explore. We found the area to be safe and busy during the day and early evening. Check with your hotel for securing tickets to the opera....More

Opera district lies between the Louvre and boulevards Haussmann, Montmartre and Bonne-Nouvelle in Paris. Apart the beautiful structures like Opera House, there are many large Departmental Stores, shops, restaurants and cafes. The area is easily accessible via Metro. Recommended.

This district is full of Chinese tourists due to its proximity to the famous department stores. It is always busy and unpleasant.

There is a lot here, a bunch of department stores, lots of shopping, restaurants and cafes, plus a crossroads and Metro intersection. And then there is the exquisite Opera, worth a tour.

We felt very safe here and didn’t worry much about pick pockets except for the Galeries Lafayette. This area is quite charming in which you can stroll around while viewing beautiful architecture, museums and shops. Had I known this area had so much appeal, I...More

Paris in October - Sites, Event, Restaurant Recommendations (2 Replies)
My husband and I will be in Paris in October and though we have been several times before (for up to 5 days) this time we will be there for 10 days (staying in the Opera district) and want to do more than the "usual haunts". We are in our mid 30s/40s and want some recommendations on areas outside the core (i.e., arrondisements 1-10) to saunter about (for shopping, browsing, etc.) and accordingly, some restaurants as well in those areas. We do enjoy our vino and martinis, so any...More

Okay, here's one to get you started: Go for an authentic crepe at West Country Girl on the passage St. Ambroise in the 11th (not to be confused with r. St. Ambroise which the passage is off). The crepes here are as different from the ones you may be used to from street vendors as night is from day. Be sure to enjoy a glass of cidre with your crepe.

Paris HoHo Bus Route - Moulin Rouge? (4 Replies)
Hello, does anyone know if the HoHo Bus will come close to the front of the famous Moulin Rouge (for picture taking) please? Is this in the Montmarte area? In 1999, when my friend and I were in Paris, I simply cannot recall if we just gotten off the metro or was it the bus, and there it was. Quite an interesting sight. I just cannot recall. (public bus or metro). I think we were coming from the direction of the Opera District. Thank you if you can help.

You're an angel. Which is the most popular color though? Wished only one bus took care of all the sights. Thank you so much.
