  • Relatively short, finally, from the place de L'opéra to the place Vendôme, the former Rue Napoléon is no less prestigious and concentrates as many historic houses as Cartier that the Empress Eugenie will have greatly helped to prosper, as prominent hotels such as the Park Hyatt Palace. It's better to have a well-supplied wallet. The pleasure of the eyes is still free...

  • At monopoly, the street of peace is the most expensive to buy, the most expensive to build but if you own it with the Champs-Elysées, you may well be master of the game and bring down the other players. It's an atomic bomb! In real life, you will never possess the street of peace and it won't be a loss. This street is a small ghetto: Jewelers and luxury stores concentrated in one place, the realm of money and big fortunes. Go your way because unless you are a Russian Magna or the Sillicon Valley, a Gulf Sheikh, a CAC40 boss or a show business star, the average Frenchman who lives with 2000 rounds per month painfully won, is persona non grata.
