What would life be without the colors and shapes of all the goods that are sold in a department store? To walk through Galeries Lafayette - anywhere in France - is an experience for anyone who enjoys browsing without the urge to spend money. Nowadays most of these goods can be bought on the internet - but does this really... More

Mini version of the huge one in Paris. Variety of brands from the reasonable too the pricey. Good deals to find during sales. Always worth a visit.

We had an excellent service. It is always a pleasure shopping at Galeries Lafayette when I travel to France. Products are always of good quality made in France.

Expensive place for shopping while there are lots of choices outside. However luxury brands and high quality choices are there, too.

This is a fantastic place to shop if you're looking for luxury brands, infact during sale, their offers are quite irresistible. They also house Pierre Herme and Maison du Chocolat if you crave macarons or chocolates. It is great to even walk around. Located in Place Massena, this is a very convenient store if you're looking to splurge.

The First floor is renovated but the rest of the department store looks like crap, especially the floorings. With the prices they charge they should be able to reinvest some money in the interior.

I thought this would be along the Selfridges line of department store but it is pretty standard. The food department is very small and not really interesting. There is nothing exciting about the interior or the visual merchandising. There is a toilet with an attendant and she told me to use my token in a cubicle which already had a... More

It wouldn't be Nice without an hour or two in Galeries Lafayette. Not as big as the eponymous Paris store but well worth a shop !

So many branded brand available on Galeries Lafayette. I love it shopping there. But before enter security will check your bag and belonging.
