Delicious home made sweets, marmalades, marshmallows and cakes!! This clasic old style shop is full of charm and character. It's à great place to buy original souvenir from Paris. Don't forget to try the lemon cake! Not too sweet, not to heavy, just perfect!

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle

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
