One of the classic “grand magasin” department stores in Paris, the flagship Galeries Lafayette on the Boulevard Haussmann has been a landmark on the city’s shopping scene for over a century. The shop’s grand staircase was inspired by its neighbor, Opéra Garnier. The symbol of the shop, however, is its stained-glass, Neo-Byzantine dome, which towers above seven floors filled with clothing, cosmetics, jewelry, and fine watches. There’s over 3,500 brands (including all the big players, like Louis Vuitton and Saint Laurent), with 150 brands devoted to shoes on the ground floor alone. When you’re ready for a shopping break, post up on the second floor at the Vue sur Coupole for a snack and a fantastic view of the Eiffel Tower, Opera House. Check out the rooftop terrace open during the daylight hours.
