Avenue Montaigne, Paris

(4.4/5 based on 130+ 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.

  • Shopping experience is the best on Montaigne Avenue. One can go to big shopping malls but I prefer this one. Quite street, major brands, all within walking distance from downtown.  more »
  • Avenue Montaigne is only a road ... but that way! Apart from the endless succession of major luxury brands, is in a very elegant (to the left of the Champées Elysees looking at the Arc de Triomphe) and well maintained in the Ville Lumière. Important buildings that bear the imprint of Hausmmann, broad streets and a "green" very well maintained, the Council for a walk but watch your wallet: everything is expensive.

  • On this avenue, you will find only brand stores, Bank, restaurant "L'avenue" and sales of works of Art Arcurial, beautiful limousines room... This street leads to the Champs Elysees at the roundabout Franklin Roosevelt. Come by metro, station "Franklin Roosevelt". For the eyes, or purchases following the awards...
