We were walking in this area and literally found it by chance and really enjoyed a stroll through the galleries seeing the little shops and the mosaics on the floor. It was one of those experiences which really enhanced the day.

Not many places offer designer pieces for second-hand sale. One store here does. I bought earrings. A young girl with me bought a purse. This "passage" is not easy to find but we finally did our last night in Paris. Wish we could have had...More

The equivalent of an early 19th Century shopping mall is now an exquisite piece of period architecture with unique shops, antiques, fine food products, lovely things. Nice tea shop. Step away from the noise on the street.

This is only one of the covered passageways so typical of Paris. Known earlier to only the locals, they are fast becoming tourist haunts - some more well-known than others. I love these passageways which blend quirky & brands with Parisian style.

Galerie Vivienne was one of the top things on my list of to-do's while in Paris. I was sad to see it was a bit rundown. There were a number of empty store fronts and some of the iconic mosaic floor tiles were ruined. Despite...More

A bit of curiosity will make you a happier traveller while in Paris. We discovered this little passage when we were going from Place des Victoires to Place Vendome and it amazed us! I would definitely recommend a visit if you're close

I visited here as my name is Vivienne! It is a beautiful passageway of shops but most were shut on the Saturday morning when we visited. I thought that the whole place seemed a bit run-down which was disappointing.

Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood 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, theaters, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
