Yesterday, I visited the famous Galeries Lafayette in the 9th arrondissement of Paris. It is an upmarket shopping centre with famous French & overseas brands. It ranges from Chanel, Valentino to TopShop & American Apparel. The first thing you notice about this place is it’s amazing ceiling. It is so grand, it’s unbelievable!
I went with a Brazilian friend who is staying at the hostel with me. We walked around all the levels looking at the things we couldn’t afford (maybe one day). I had heard that the view from the top of the building was supposed to be amazing, so we walked up and it did not disappoint.
After the breathtaking view of Paris from the top of Galeries Lafayette, we went down to Angelina which is famous french cafe/tea room and I had a cafe au lait & a chocolate eclair. That was just part one of the day, after this I went to the Panthéon & Jardin du Luxembourg.
