There is something special about the Parisian department stores and this why I decided to blog about it. Write down those 3 names before you visit Paris:

Visit Printemps for the view from the rooftop
On my last visit to Paris I had a list with 30 things to do and see. One of those was a visit to Printemps in the Boulevard Haussmann. I took the elevator and went to the rooftop. There is a restaurant with a terrace and a spectacular view!I wasn’t really interested in shopping but nevertheless, I couldn’t pass those masterpieces of my favourite fashion designer Mary Katrantzou that you see on the photos above. How can you disregard them?

Visit Galleries Lafayette for the glamorous ceiling
Once you enter the department with all the perfumes in Galleries Lafayette, look up and see the glamorous ceiling of which you should take a picture.

Visit Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche for the shoe department store
Add it to your bucket list. Even if you are not a great shopper, just go and see.
