Costumes & Châteaux

Quartier Saint-Louis Fodor's choice
Anyone harboring a royal-for-a-day fantasy should head straight over to this charming costume boutique, where women, men, and kids can dress up in the high style of the Sun King's day. You can then have your picture taken or take the made-in-Versailles costume home as a memento.

Quartier des Antiquaires

Fodor's choice

In the heart of the Notre-Dame neighborhood, a few steps from the fabulous market, the Quartier des Antiquaires is a warren of streets, passages, and squares beginning at the northwest corner of the market square and extending along the cobbled streets to the charming Passage de la Geôle. You'll find scores of elegant antiques shops brimming with eye-popping objects, paintings, furniture, china, and bibelots from every epoch.
