In addition to the proximity of many museums, the Hotel Touraine Opéra is just a few minutes’ walk from the Boulevard Haussmann and its temples to fashion, the Galeries Lafayette, Printemps and other stores featuring trendy brands and designers. Performance venues such as the Théâtre Mogador, the Paris Casino or the Théâtre Saint-Georges (where François Truffaut also filmed The Last Metro), among others, are also found a few minutes from the hotel.
Heading north, you can easily reach Montmartre, the picturesque village perched on its famous mound topped by the Sacré-Cœur and traversed by neat lanes. In its foothills right next to the hotel, the popular South Pigalle district is filled with bars and restaurants where you can enjoy a good time. Towards the south-east, you will arrive at the Grands Boulevards and their busy adjoining streets and plunge into 19th-century Paris, today so cosmopolitan. To the west, the upmarket neighbourhoods, and not far from there, the Champs Élysées. A walk south reveals countless sites and monuments each more prestigious than the next, including Opera Garnier, Place Vendôme, Place de la Madeleine, Palais Royal, Tuileries, etc.
