Top 20 Opéra - Madeleine - Grands Magasins, Paris vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
Dressed to impress, this elegant neighbourhood is lined with 19th century Haussmannian buildings and packed full of historic landmarks. Perhaps some of its best kept secrets can be found in its Art Nouveau passages like Passage Vivienne, where you can stroll along mosaïc corridors and peruse antique stalls and pret-à-porter boutiques. The Opéra Garnier is not to be missed so even if you don't have time to watch a ballet, step inside and take in the opulent interior. Going towards Madeleine, you'll find some of the best specialty grocery stores in the capital such as Fauchon, Hédiard and Ladurée - the perfect (albeit pricey) spot to go fridge-filling.
