Holiday Travel Guide
Grands Boulevards featuring a city and heritage elements

With numerous boulevards, bars, retail shops and entertainment venues, you’ll discover why this is one of the liveliest areas in Paris.

Experience the best of the Parisian boulevards at the Grands Boulevards. Shop in the magnificent Galeries Lafayette, visit a gourmet chocolate museum and tour the Palais Garnier opera house. This area is bustling with activity and is perfect for visitors to Paris. These boulevards and avenues are the essence of Belle-Epoque Paris and a hub of shopping, leisure and entertainment.

Explore the Galeries Lafayette, a luxurious department store known for its high-end cosmetics and perfume stores. Catch a free weekly fashion show or admire the grand 10-story structure, famous for shopping in Paris. Discover the nearby theaters, bars and nightclubs in Grands Boulevards.

See the magnificent Palais Garnier, an opera house with almost 2,000 seats, grand staircases and the famous ceiling painted by artist Marc Chagall. Book a tour or see a concert at this celebrated structure, known to have inspired Gaston Leroux’s The Phantom of the Opera.

Trace the 4,000-year history of chocolate at the Gourmet Chocolate Museum in Paris. Take a self-guided tour, during which you’ll watch chocolate-making demonstrations and see historical exhibits on the world’s favorite treat. Taste a range of chocolate samples and try the delicious hot chocolate.

See many of the 450 wax characters at the Musée Grévin, a wax museum founded in the late 19th century. The Musée Grévin is one of the oldest wax museums in Europe and features stunning Baroque architecture and a hall of mirrors. The wax characters include a chronology of French history from Charlemagne to Napoleon III and international figures such as Mahatma Gandhi and Albert Einstein.

Visit the Village Joué Club, the largest toy store in Paris. With 15 individual storefronts spread in and around the Passage des Princes, the Village Joué Club is remarkable for both children and adults.

Find the Grands Boulevards on lines 8 or 9 using the Paris Metro. With a number of express trains operating from the Charles de Gaulle Airport to the center of Paris, you’ll have no trouble visiting or staying in this area.

Stroll along the ornate glass-roofed arcades in the Grands Boulevards for an authentic Paris experience.
