Forum des Halles is a massive subterranean shopping centre connected to Les Halles underground station. The place is filled with many French High Street shops. Right next door is the Rue de Rivoli, one of the busiest shopping thoroughfares in Paris.

rue de faubourg saint-honorÉ

The Rue de Faubourg Saint-Honoré is one of the most fashionable streets in the world, a narrow road behind the Rue de Rivoli, packed with high-end boutiques.

les puces de saint-ouen

Les Puces are flea markets; these are in northern Paris, and a perfect place to find bargains and, maybe, something just a little bit different to remind you of your stay, from vintage clothing to antique furniture – I wouldn't be surprised if you could get a pink elephant in there.

Hugely busy, lots of crowds, hustle and bustle – BE WARY OF PICKPOCKETS!

tax free shopping

Some countries may be able to enjoy tax free shopping. Check whether this applies to you, and then ask in store whether the service is available there.
