The 9th district is where the shopping malls are : Galeries Lafayette and Printemps. Apart from that, lots of shops and also the stock exchange Atos Euronext @ 6, bd Haussmann (at lunchtime, you'll see lots of people going out for lunch, all in a hurry. Many cafes and brasseries around Bd des Italiens (like Leon de Bruxelles, inexpensive and good to eat mussels)

On the 9th district : Opera Garnier. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palais_Garnier

Then :

- Madeleine Church
- A bit further but still close : Place Vendome, Louvre Museum, Tuileries Gardens, Concorde square and bridge.
- between the Madeleine Church and the Concorde square, on rue Royale, there's Laduree tea room (the original one, smaller but nicer than the one at Champs Élysées) good macarons
- at 226, rue de Rivoli : Angelina tea room, also good for lunch. Try the Montblanc, their hot chocolate is also delicious, good pastries, good club sandwich.
- restaurant Chartier http://www.restaurant-chartier.com/ 7, rue du Faubourg Montmartre, 75009 ... Typic, good, inexpensive, huge and always crowded (noisy)

This is the area of Les grands Magasins. Galleries La Fayette is a beautiful store with a huge glass dome. At Christmas time there is a large tree in the centre, and the lights outside are magnificent. You can go to the very top of the store and go out on to the roof to get a wonderful free panoramic view of Paris.
Do visit the old covered shopping arcades built in the 19th Century, early versions of the shopping mall.Passage Jouffroy and passage Verdeau are close to Boulevard Haussmann and rue Vivienne. They are bursting with quaint shops and little restaurants.
Walk up to Montmartre through Rue Des Martyrs and Rue Lepic to get the feel of Montmartre.
Sacre Coeur is my favourite church in Paris.
If you have time visit the old cemetery of Pere Lachaise and the fantastic Butte Chaumaunt in the East of the city.
There are a whole host of fantastic museums.
It is eay to get around on the metro, it is also cheap too. However, you see so much more if you walk and explore.
Have a lovely time.

You will be just about in the middle of one of the very main centres of Paris. Close to the major shopping district - and near to Montmartre. You will find cafes and more cafes everywhere. Same with restaurants.
