What on earth are we telling you about a supermarket? Well, Monoprix is not just any old supermarket; the fact that they are the only ones to have a supermarket on the Champs Elysées should tell you something for a start.
Although you wouldn't know it (because the food hall is hidden in the basement) Monoprix could be the clever option if you want to eat something quick and healthy at lunchtime. Their refined selection of prepared sandwiches, tarts and snack food is a cut above the rest, has several vegetarian options and makes an effort to be healthy too.
Also, if you get past the lunch section, you'll see that they have a wide selection of traditional French produce that would make great presents for taking back home with you. Plus, there's a range of imported goods if you're craving your favourite biscuits from back home.
They also have a smaller store (food only) just down the road at 122 Rue de la Boétie. Check them out!
Once you arrive in Paris, stop by the Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau for tourist information about the city (museums, events, attractions....). You can also book your hotel and plan daytrips, an evening at a Cabaret, or a trip to the amusement park. Paris Visite cards and other museum passes are also available for sale.
