The spot is excellent for shopping, cafes and restaurants. Its between Hausmann and Rue Rivoli and kind of city central. Needless to say the Opera house is the key feature of the district. Overall highly recommended

Fantastic spot in central Paris, full of restaurants, steps from the Grand Boulevards and Grands Magasains. About €10-15 by cab to all major attractions.

In the area, dominated by the magnificent Opera building there is so much to do. Many cafes, restaurants, chocolate shops and very near Galerie Lafayette and Printemps. Easy to walk around and spend a few hours.

Honestly Im not an opera fan but the building was still a must see. I looks like a palace inside .. well worth the 11 euros. We didn't want to take the guided tour .. preferred to walk about on our own.

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
