This is no different than any other street with upmarket shops in fancy buildings. It's an attempt at Champs Elysees in Paris without the charm and beauty of the aged buildings. It's cheaper, with better service, to go to Paris. So rather go to Paris.

If you enjoy a bit of history, a stroll in gemmayze street is a must. You get to glimpse the famous architectural structures that have been preserved across the years. It combines residences, pubs and night clubs.
