A magical afternoon threading my way through the 19th Century covered passageways of the 2nd and 9th. Started with Galerie Vivienne which is perhaps the most exquisite. Enjoyed a coffee and glass of wine at Bistrot Vivienne. Lovely shops such as Legrand Filles et Fils...More

If you are in the area or have already done all the big Paris sights, this is worth a look. But shouldn't be a priority. The architecture is more of a draw than the shops themselves, but we enjoyed window shopping (shops were quite expensive).

It has a newer look to it, though it dates back to 1823 (I think). It was a very quiet day when we visited. The shops all seemed expensive and were empty of customers. The architecture and brightness of the passage is beautiful. The wine...More

It was a rainy morning, and we came straight after Galerie Vero-Dodat. This seemed to be a better maintained galerie than the other, and slightly larger. Emphasis on 'slightly'. More restaurants, and a cool toy store, a really cool looking bookstore.

If you expect a shopping heaven, go to the Galeries Lafayette instead. This is a small place with some character. You can simply explore its history and architecture in a quarter or so as it is just next to the Jardin du Palais Royal's exit...More

I come here on every trip to Paris. It's the early Nineteenth Century equivalent of today's shopping mall, but so much more because of the unique architecture and embellishments. Good place to shop for special souvenirs, or stop in the A Prioite cafe for something...More

Of all the passageways in Paris, this one is my favourite. It's worth a visit even if you aren't planning on stopping for a drink or food. The architecture is so beautiful and so are the Mosaic tiled floors. Make sure you look up and...More

Really wanted to see a few of the old galleries from 1800's . This was open on Sunday because it has a couple of restaurants. Lovely glass and iron cover and floor mosaics.

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
