Bercy Village

The newest metro line, Line 14, delivers you straight to Bercy Village. So, if you leave from the Madeleine stop, it’s only about 10 or 15 minutes. For the summer time especially, this is a great choice since the way the outdoor mall is laid out is really more like a village. Amidst quasi-cobblestoned streets and stone façade storefronts, you’ll find in your wanderings here an Agnès b., Alice Délice, Sephora, Arteum and more. And Eric Kayser, the famous Parisian baker, has a lunch room here at Bercy. Nice.

When Bercy Village opened a good few years ago, people were as excited about the dining choices as its shopping options. I guess it’s a matter of perspective. The thing is, when you’re traveling, you often have several perspectives to please all at the same time. Bercy Village, then, can serve as a very pleasing choice.
