Galignani Bookshop

Author: Anothertravelguide.com0 COMMENTS

Galignani can boast a very respectable past: Libraire Galignani, opened in 1801 by Giovanni Galignani, became the first English bookshop in France, as well as the publisher of the first Parisian English language newspaper. The bookshop has remained a family property and currently offers about 50 000 titles, including an excellent choice of books on art and fashion. Don't be confused by the location - the bookshop is situated right in the middle of Rue de Rivoli, the thoroughfare of tourists and dubious souvenir shops; Galignani moved here form Rue Vivienne on purpose, to be closer to the nearby luxury hotels and its clients, among which the bookshop has counted the Duke of Windsor and Ernest Hemingway.

224 Rue de Rivoli, 75001

Metro: Tuileries
