Opera district lies between the Louvre and boulevards Haussmann, Montmartre and Bonne-Nouvelle in Paris. Apart the beautiful structures like Opera House, there are many large Departmental Stores, shops, restaurants and cafes. The area is easily accessible via Metro. Recommended.

This district is full of Chinese tourists due to its proximity to the famous department stores. It is always busy and unpleasant.

There is a lot here, a bunch of department stores, lots of shopping, restaurants and cafes, plus a crossroads and Metro intersection. And then there is the exquisite Opera, worth a tour.

The Opera district is a wonderful place to stay and visit while in Paris. There are quite a few attractions to visit - buildings, museums, galleries, churches and markets, and obviously - do some high-end shopping. Highly recommended.

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
