Paris shopping capital of the world, starts 2014 with some great bargains as the sales begin and we at Hotel Opera Lafayette look forward to welcoming you as we wish you a very Happy New Year.
The famous Galeries Lafayette on Boulevard Haussmann is the perfect start to your personal shopping expedition, with ten storeys for you to browse, and breathtaking interior design. The bargains will take your breath away too during the winter sales which start in all the biggest Paris stores on January 8 and run until February 11.
You'll want to visit Printemps too, another landmark Paris store dating from the Art Nouveau period of the late 19th century. The goods inside, though, are very much the latest in style and fashion - though the prices during the sale are so low to feel very old-fashioned indeed.
Of course, no visit to Paris is complete without at least one visit to the Louvre, one of the world's greatest, and largest, museums. We recommend that you plan your visit carefully, perhaps just taking in one part of this extraordinary place at a time so that you can fully appreciate the masterpieces that you are seeing.
And of course you will want to spend time at Notre-Dame, the great cathedral of our city with its awe-inspiring architecture. We recommend you go early in the morning or late in the afternoon, so that you can enjoy Notre-Dame without the crowds.
At Hotel Opera Lafayette, we're close to all the main stores and sights and we're always available to recommend to you the best places to go to find that special something. Once again, we offer our best wishes for the New Year, and we look forward making your visit to Paris in 2014 a really special occasion.
And once again, all of us wish you the very best for 2014.
