At Christmas, Paris comes alive. The streets of the capital capture the holiday spirit to beguile the passers-by with the magic of Christmas. The shops create magical and enchanting Christmas window displays. Of course, Rue Saint-Honoré and Rue Rivoli are included! Why not enjoy a stay at the Hotel du Continent to buy your Christmas gifts?
Located in the immediate vicinity of your boutique hotel, Rue Saint-Honoré and Rivoli are two addresses of choice for a day of shopping! Resolutely chic and refined, the first, located between the 1st and 8th arrondissements of Paris, is home to many luxury boutiques including Chloé, Dolce & Gabbana, Lanvin, Cartier and Christian Louboutin. Do not forget to visit the Place Vendôme and its famous jewellers. Art lovers can also visit the many art galleries and antique shops on the most luxurious street in Paris!
The second Parisian shopping paradise, only a few moments from the Hotel du Continent: Rue Rivoli! More understated than the first is spread over three kilometres, from the 1st to the 4th arrondissement of Paris. It passes some of the most beautiful monuments of Paris: the Hôtel de Ville, the Louvre, the Place du Palais Royal and the Jardin des Tuileries before ending at the Place de la Concorde. Here you will discover magnificent arcades and major chain stores such as Mango, Etam, Pimkie, Sephora, BHV, L'Occitane, H&M or Minelli. No doubt: the foot of the tree will be well trimmed! The street also has many cafés, perfect for a gourmet break.
