Chic boutiques, department stores, designer workshops: the best shopping addresses in Paris

Wake up slowly in a cosy Montmartre bistro to watch the sun climb over the rooftops of Paris: a unique sight. If you want to pick up a few souvenirs, there’s no better place to find them than here.After that come down from the hills and head for the Madeleine with its chic boutiques, the typical hustle and bustle of the Grands Boulevards and the magic of the Parisian department stores for an unforgettable shopping experience. All the big stores have cafes and restaurants, most usually offering a great view over the city.   Window-shopping is on the menu later in the afternoon-along the avenue des Champs-Elysées, avenue Montaigne or Faubourg Saint-Honoré. Minutes later, metro line 1 will have whisked you into the Marais district to explore the myriad fashion and design boutiques and to linger over dinner in this appealing area.
