The biggest luxury department store in Europe, Galeries Lafayette opened in 1893 and is now home to hundreds of designer shops as well as the world’s largest perfumery. The store comprises three separate structures, including the 10-story Haussman building topped by an enormous stained-glass cupola. At the welcome desk, multilingual employees guide shoppers to upscale boutiques from Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Prada, and Cartier, in addition to jewelry, cosmetics, and home furnishings stores.
