Galeries Lafayette

The Galeries Lafayette is an amazing shopping mall. Although very touristy, it is a must-see for anyone in Paris. Each floor is organized by type of merchandise for ease of shopping, but at the center of each is a wide space with a beautiful ceiling. It is unlike anything we have back home. We are lucky enough to be here during the holiday so there is a gigantic white christmas tree to add to the decor.

My favorite part of the mall were the windows. They are again, all white and have moving parts that show a polar bear scene at a long table. Paris has amazing windows in general but this was definitely one of my favorites.

One thing to be cautious of when visiting Galeries Lafayette…the macarons! They look incredibly delicious but they taste like dinner. Turns out white truffle is not a sweet dessert flavor, but a mushroom. Other than that, it was a fantastic experience and we will definitely be going back!
