The 9th arrondissment on the Rive Droite has two distinct sections: the boulevards in the south are home to some of the city’s most prestigious stores and monuments, while the Pigalle district to the north, formerly down-at-heel, now offers fashionable bars, vintage stores and impressive food shops. The area’s bustling appeal epitomises Parisian cool and is a great place to discover. Shopping in the 9th arrondissement is diverse. The iconic Galeries Lafayette department store, a top draw, stocks the best of French and international design talent. Those looking for more vintage and unique souvenir ideas should make a point of seeking out Passage Jouffroy, one of Paris’s historic shopping arcades.
