  3. Boulevard Haussmann



Starting from the intersection at Sant-Augustin metro and running all the way to rue Drouot, Boulevard Haussmann, opened in 1864 to help ease Paris' transition from a medieval city to a modern capitol. Planned by Georges Haussman as part of an extravagant series of reforms, this boulevard is famous for infusing the then cluttered city-scape of Paris with refinement. Here you will find the immaculate Le Printemps and Galeries Lafayette, two must-see shopping hot spots for quality Parisian couture, home accessories and more.
