First inaugurated in 1893, the Galeries Lafayette department store is a Paris fashion institution. Located near the stately Opera Garnier, this is an essential stop for fashion enthusiasts: men and women’s designer collections are always kept at the cutting-edge, and the latest trends in jewelry and accessories, home furnishings, or cosmetics can all be perused under one roof. Galeries Lafayette also houses one of Paris’ gourmet food markets, Lafayette Gourmet, that will be sure to tempt foodies. Modeled after a middle eastern bazaar, the store flaunts elegant Belle Epoque architecture.
