Avenue Montaigne, Paris
(4.3/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
This historic site, Avenue Montaigne, was originally called the Widows’ Alley in the 18th century because women in mourning gathered there, but the street has changed much since those days. The current name comes from Michel de Montaigne, a writer of the French Renaissance. When you wander this street today, you will find a treasure trove of famous fashion stores, including Louis Vuitton, Dior, Chanel, Fendi, Valentino, and Ralph Lauren as well as jewelers like Bulgari and other upscale establishments such as the Plaza Athénée hotel.

The Canadian Embassy is also located here, and actress Marlene Dietrich once owned an apartment on this street for many years and died there in 1992. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Paris holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Avenue Montaigne and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • If you're looking for a great place to do some "fancy shopping", this is it! Beautiful area with lovely buildings even if you're just window shopping. 
  • There is a famous French film with Gérard Depardieu called "Avenue Montagne" where the protagonist walks into a convertible through this glamorous Avenue. To visit it was a wonderful experience and I felt like in the movie (which is very good and also recommend you see).

  • It's always a great pleasure to have the chance to quietly visit great stores that belong to the international fame of Paris. Not to mention some very good places to eat.
