What Makes It Special
Luxurious walkway built in 1823 according to plans by the architect François-Jean Delannoy, the Galerie Vivienne is listed as a historical monument in 1974. At 176 meters long and under an overhead light that illuminates the terrazzo period , appear refined luxury shops. Come walk there for a timeless moment in a unique setting.

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.
Close to the Valois galleries. Walk through the streets to one of Galerie Vivienne's covered passages. (19th Century Shopping in Paris is often between two buildings and two streets. The ceiling is often glass and decorated. Beautifully known and popular tourists. Colorful mosaic floor The...More
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.

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.
I was not going there wanting to buy anything but left wishing I was a millionaire. So pretty you don’t have to buy anything just to take a Instagram worthy picture of the mosaic tiles or the 1920s style Parisian storefronts or the beautiful modern...More
In the heart of Paris, in the 2nd arrondissement near Place des Victoires, this wonderful galerie is totally covered and is the entrance to wine bars, small restaurants, tea houses, all wonderful places.To try it is to adopt it! I go back each trip.
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.
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
another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
