Galeries Lafayette Paris

1x1.trans Galeries Lafayette ParisThere is nothing better than traversing markets in other countries. While I tend to stick to the more down to Earth galerias  and les halles; once in a while, I crave a little luxury. When I was in Italy, this craving was sated by the many Eatalies throughout the country. In Paris, this was taken care of by Galeries Lafayette Gourmet.

You can get pretty much anything you desire there. There are also various eating establishments…should you get hungry while you’re shopping. Here are some examples of the things you can find at Galeries Lafayette Gourmet:
