Why did it take me a whole year to step inside this outrageously grand department store?
This place literally oozes luxury. The interior is very impressive, as well as all those huge brand stores. I’ve heard it is about 1000 times grander at Christmas, so I’m quite gutted I didn’t make time to see it!
Be sure to also go to the terrace for yet another view of Paris! There is seating up here as well, so you can really take your time to enjoy it.
It’s a good idea to enjoy some shopping once you’ve seen the Opera, as the Galeries Lafayette is about 2 minutes away.
