Paris and shopping, aren’t these synonyms? haha… two of my favourites but like many others, you also must be under the impression that shopping in Paris is expensive, isn’t it? The answer is no! You just need to shop at the right places which suit your pocket.

This is the fourth part of the Paris Tour Guide series and if you still haven’t read the first three parts then quickly go through all of those so that you are well aware of the attractions in Paris and the Paris Pass before you start shopping.   

1. Champs Elysees

This is the world famous shopping street situated right in line with the Louvre Museum. This street is house to all the luxury boutiques in the world and also a house to regular brands like Sephora, Zara, Mango and more. This 1.91 km stretch is the Mecca of shopaholics.

There is something for all kind of people here whether it be just wanting to sit and relax in a cafe or go mad riding a Ferrari, everything!

Going towards Arc de Triomphe, on the left-hand side are all the luxury boutiques and on the right-hand side are the regular brands (more or less the arrangement is like this). Here is a glimpse of a few shops that you will find here:

ZARA Home

This was the first time when I visited “ZARA Home”, I was absolutely unaware of its existence. If you are also like me then welcome to the club :). As the name suggests ZARA Home is a place to buy decor and essentials for your home. You will find beautiful bedsheets, cutlery sets, door knobs, plates and so much more. It is worth a visit.

And, you don’t mind spending 300 or 400 Euros on such products? then before you buy stuff from the big boutiques on Champs-Elysees visit this Village.
