☆ Glamorous Paris ☆

Witness Paris in all its splendour of gold, marble and crystal..

Admire the dome of the Opera House, the rue Royale and rue de la Paix, English tailors, tearooms, prestigious hotels, bellboys, the diamonds of place Vendôme, and the gardens of the Palais-Royal..

It’s not just the nearby Comédie-Française theatre that puts on a show – the stores in this district are entertainment enough!!

Admire boxes (of the musical and chocolate variety), exhibition rooms hung with silks or artful displays of goat skins, antique engravings, and much more..

Rumour has it though that these elegant arcades were home to risqué goings-on, where scooters now fly by..

And if the truth be told, many a man has been ruined by dancing girls from the Opera House..

And, of course, there are the grands boulevards, these broad avenues with buzzing music halls, café-theatres, and numerous shows with a cheeky edge..

Like the big department stores, which illuminate the boulevard Haussmann, this is the centre of chic with a sprinkling of stardust..

Everything seems much more refined under the stained-glass Art Nouveau cupolas!!

That’s what the Belle Époque was all about, and it’s alive and well in this part of Paris..
