Louvre Stay and experience French history!The 1st District is above all epic royal history. Each building is a marvel of classical architecture. The Tuileries neighborhood, distinguished by the dominant and immense Palais du Louvre, turned one of the largest museums in the world, is simply a must.Shopping is also honored by luxury stores such as the boutiques at Place Vendôme or the collector's market, Avenue de Marigny. Or you may prefer to shop at the Forum des Halles mall or the Carrousel du Louvre.Exhausted by the weight of the centuries (as well as souvenirs and gifts!), take a minute for a romantic halt at the marvelous gardens of the Tuileries or those of the Palais Royal ... unless you prefer to succumb to the zen ambiance and sashimi dishes of one of the many Japanese restaurants on the Rue St. Anne.That goes to show how French tradition and international cuisine can get along well together!
