Paris shopping

Collections of boutiques can be found in most of central Paris, though the highways to designer heaven are primarily on the Right Bank. In the Third, the Rue du Temple and its side streets mix galleries and homegrown cutting-edge boutiques; in the Fourth, the Rue des Francs Bourgeois and the Rue Vieille du Temple offer tiny shops dedicated to Japanese imports and designer rags. On the Rue de Rivoli, in the First Arrondissement, you can walk from the Bazar de l'Hotel de Ville to the Louvre without missing a major global brand. The Rue Montorgueil is the fashionably atmospheric market street for the First, and its side streets hold a tantalizing group of small vintage stores. On the Left Bank, the Boulevard Saint-Germain and its side streets mix old bohemian cafés with clusters of high-end fashion around the Place Saint-Germain and the Place Saint-Sulpice. The general opening hours for shops are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., some with a lunch break (generally 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.), Monday to Saturday. On Sundays, most places are closed, with the large exception of the Marais (a traditionally Jewish neighborhood), parts of the Bastille and the Latin Quarter, as well as some tourist-oriented stores.
