I was at Lafayette Galeries like it was a museum :)) Yes, really, I did'n remember if I choose somethink to buy, but for sure , I did o lot of photos, because it's a huge shop with a design and decoration like a Christmas tree.

The reason to go here in first hand is to see the beautiful interior of this house. It's amazing to see the building and the stores are nicely presented as well.
There are levels with very pricey stores and then there are levels with normal prices as well, so everyone can find something here.
On one of the upper floors there are restaurants with view, smelled very goog.
Don't miss the roof top terrace where you have a marvellous view of the city. For a sunny day it would be great to have a lunch up here.

Best place for Christmas decor but the place is a zoo filled with people from all walks of life especially tourists.

The goods offered are varied but getting about is a pain because of the number of people in the store, mostly tourists. I suggest going next door to Printemps as the service is better and better merchandise selection.

Hi Merta1900,

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We're sorry to hear that you had a difficult time navigating the store. We do experience increased traffic during the summer and holiday seasons. In order to facilitate your shopping, we've improved our in-store mapping app. Our concierges and welcome desk are always on hand to direct you towards the brand or items you're searching for.

I hope this has been helpful!

Kind regards,

Visited this fantastic, beautiful shopping paradise on a recent trip to Paris.
All the departments for clothing are beautifully presented and all the brands that you could ever want are right here.
The cosmetic area is on the ground floor, never seen so much, every brand you could think of and more, not just the luxury brands.
We had morning tea in a little cafe above the cosmetics, where we could look down to the floor below and also get a good look at he stained glass dome, which was the roof, fantastic!
Everyone should see this department store, if not for shopping, just for the experience.

If you get a chance, go and visit this department store. The interior is very beautiful! In addition if you go to the top floor you will be rewarded with beautiful views of Paris!
