You will probably also want to begin at once doing some shopping, even before you go looking for special souvenirs. Shopping in Paris will give you an idea of the vitality of the city, whether you are buying food or any other article. It is a large city where the people work hard.
Shops selling food are open from 8.30 a.m. ( the bakeries from 7 ) to 1 p.m. and from 4 p.m. to 7.30 p.m. Other shops ( fashion boutiques, bookshops, hairdressers, etc. ) are mostly open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. without interruption. Food shops are also open on Sunday morning, but on Monday most of them are closed ( some only in the morning ).
Cheap Hotels in Paris
Remember that in many shops ( fashion shops, those selling perfume, jewelry, or other luxury goods ), if you show your passport and a special card issued by your bank or by American Express, you can make a saving on sales tax. There is no embarkation tax at the Paris airports.
I don’t know if I’m much of a shopper…I’m more up to visiting old and new buildings, and to have the honor to be able to see Eiffel Tower, that would be the most treasurable moment in my life. I may buy glass snowball with an Eiffel Tower in it, just to remember the time I visited Pars.
