Many boutiques are closed in August and I did not call to see if it was open so we were very disappointed to find it closed 😞. Moral of the story, when in Paris in August, call to see if specific shoppes are open.

legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
