Every day of the week tourists from all over the world, shopping enthusiasts and fashion devotees stroll up and down the world’s most famous avenue, where haute couture and luxury names such as Louis Vuitton and Guerlain rub shoulders with popular and affordable brands such as Gap or Disney Store. A stone’s throw away, avenue Montaigne is indisputably the place for fashion designers, and this is where you’ll find top name boutiques such as Givenchy, Jimmy Choo and Yves Saint-Laurent.

The Galeries Lafayette (72,000 sqm.) and Printemps (52,000 sqm.) are without question the high points of any shopping expedition in Paris! Over a million product references and hundreds of brands are on sale in these stores, sometimes exclusively. Not far from these two legendary Parisian department stores is the passage du Havre, leading to the Gare Saint-Lazare, which extends this incredible shopping experience even further. You can also find all around this area shops open on sundays, like Gap rue Tronchet.

This historic area is especially well known for its high concentration of trendy shops. You can find almost anything you need in the emblematic general department store, the Bazar de L’Hôtel de Ville (BHV MARAIS). Why not try a Sunday brunch in one of its 3rd-floor restaurants? The surrounding streets in the Marais district teem with a variety of independent boutiques such as Bring France Home, where you can buy “100% made in France” souvenirs to take home.  

Les Halles

Formerly a wine market, Bercy Village is one of the most original shopping areas in the city. The remains of the stone storehouses, originally used for wine, have been renovated and converted into more than forty boutiques. Visitors are spoiled for choice: homeware, fashion, nature discovery, gastronomy and leisure activities.

Located beneath the Louvre museum, the Carrousel du Louvre is an unusual and delightful shopping centre comprising about thirty souvenir shops and luxury boutiques specialising in leisure activities and interior decoration. Literally an extension of the Louvre museum, this shopping centre in the heart of Paris is one of the capital’s most highly rated, and also houses a branch of the Printemps department store. A stone’s throw away, the avenue de l’Opéra, leading to the Haussmann district, also has a few shops which are open on a Sunday, including Paris Louvre KAMS Duty Free SPHE, which has a wide range of tax-free items. In the streets around the rue du Marché Saint-Honoré and the Place Vendôme, Sunday shoppers will find some of the major names in the luxury segment, including Guerlain, Chanel and Chloé, or the multi-brand store Benlux Louvre.

Montparnasse and the rue de Rennes

The rue de Rennes has something for all tastes and for all budgets! Clothes shops, beauty shops, jewellers and more can be found in this shopping district which stretches into the Latin Quarter. At the foot of the Montparnasse Tower, the marché de la création Paris Montparnasse is an immense open-air art gallery. Art-lovers can discover paintings, engravings, sculptures, ceramics, marquetry, stained-glass, silk-screen printing and other forms of artistic creation.

The Latin Quarter

Famous the world over, the Latin Quarter and its narrow streets offer an opportunity to combine a historical visit with a shopping expedition. Looking for a typical but trendy souvenir of Paris? Try Par’ici, the number one outlet for souvenirs of the capital. Let yourself be tempted by a sweet treat at the natural, at the Boulanger de la Tour. After a stopover in the Latin Quarter, why not continue your shopping trip on the nearby Île Saint-Louis.
