Department Store
$$$
“Two huge buildings and one building is for food and the other is for clothes. High end shop but worth going just to look. The food building is my favorite and there’s 4 floors. Each floor is dedicated to either wine, groceries, kitchen supplies and then furniture. Beautiful place ”

Neighbourhood
“Since 1889, the Eiffel Tower became a symbol of Paris. A bit over crowded but much more convenient if you follow some little tips. For instance you’ll find 10/20 times less people if you take the rue Saint-Dominique instead of the river side path.”
