Paris 2nd arrondissement|
The Opéra district is centered on the Palais Garnier From 1852, this former peaceful district of Paris was completely transformed by the work of Baron Haussmann, who constructed wide roads in order to encourage better traffic flow. Some ten years later, the construction of a new opera house was entrusted to the young architect Charles Garnier. Very quickly, the Opéra district became overrun with cafés, theaters, and luxury stores and finally became the heart of Parisian commercial activity. Today, along the perfectly straight avenues, all around the Palais Garnier, stand luxury boutiques, banks, offices, department stores, and top hotels.
The Opéra Garnier is one of the must-see monuments of Paris. You can take a guided tour or wander around at your own pace so you can climb the great staircase and explore the lobbies, the museum, and the auditorium. The Musée de la Parfumerie (9 rue Scribe) is a small, unusual museum that is worth a visit. Founded by the perfumer Fragonard, the museum offers exhibitions of old bottles and tools for making perfume (perfume organs, stills, etc.). If you want to get a different perspective, head to the terrace of Galeries Lafayette, which offers superb views over the roofs of the Opéra Garnier and central Paris. The Opéra district: showy, luxurious, and excessive Between shopping for fashion and enjoying great food, the district is home to the famous Parisian department stores, Printemps and the Galeries Lafayette (64 and 40 Boulevard Haussmann). In addition to the luxury products on offer from the world's most famous designers, don't miss the extraordinary "Lafayette Gourmet" food section, where the finest food products from around the world are on sale.
