On my way home after the Christmas meal, see preceding post, I passed by Avenue Montaigne. This avenue is one of the most fashionable in Paris. It starts at Place de L’Alma with its Statue of Liberty torch (see previous post) and the distant view of Sacré Coeur. At the beginning of the Avenue you will also find the Théatre des Champs-Elysées (see previous post). Walking up towards the Champs-Elysées you will find a number of luxury shops. Dior was the first of the fashion houses to get established here and many others have followed. The easiest way to do your shopping is of course to stay at the Hotel Plaza-Athénée, one of the city’s top hotels. After crossing the Rond-Point des Champs-Elysées, the avenue continues... ..., but now you must change your shopping to art and antiques. Good shopping! (When I passed, it was all closed.)
Have a nice weekend, see you Monday!
