Wandering into this gallery gives you a sense of the kinds of pieces you could add to your collection (or as a gift, to someone else's) while combing the streets of Paris. And while the serious art collector, it's true, will be found mostly on the Left Bank scouring the galleries in and around St. Germain-des-Prés or on the Right Bank in the Marais district, this area still offers some gems to be unearthed. But that's not to say that off the beaten path, such as in this once downtrodden and still a bit offbeat rue Montorgueil area you won't find some gems. As with most all art galleries, the showings change so you'll never visit the same space twice. The nice thing about collecting a piece of art work from your travels is once you have it displayed back home it will always remind you of that lovely romantic afternoon in Paris.

- Best for 2nd Arrondissement - Montorgueil's Best Shopping Because: Window shopping through Paris' art galleries on a Sunday afternoon is one of the best ways to spend a leisurely day in Paris.
