And when you’ve had your fill of shopping, be sure to save room for dessert. Chocolates are a must, and Pierre Marcolini, whose boutique resembles a couture  salon, is the go-to for delectable ganaches wrapped in chic, all-black packaging.

Later it was home to the French painter Jacques-Louis David.
