A mouthwatering selection of Exquisite chocolates for the senses. I couldn't walk past this gorgeous shop, the Windows so artfully displayed. So much choice & did not disappoint the tastebuds. Traditionally picture perfect in every way, a worthwhile speciality shop with friendly staff. Would recommend.

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
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
