Gift & Specialty Shop Shopping
With architectutal beauty and classy shopping tied into one, Galerie Vivienne is a restored 19th century covered passage created with glass roofs, mosaic-tiled floors, and hand-carved wood. It makes the perfect spot for you to rest and enjoy tea and snacks from the residing shops, which could also take some time to explore. For example, check out A Priori Thé, a classic Paris tea salon, or Legrand Filles & Fils with its delicate chocolates and other candies plus a wine cellar that’s considered a piece of heaven by wine connoisseurs.

Clothing and household furnishing shops also fill the passageway. If you’re traveling with children, Si Tu Veux is considered one of the best toy stores in Europe. Plan your Galerie Vivienne visit and explore what else you can see and do in Paris using our Paris vacation planner.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.

  • This is a spectacular place to see it was based on drawings of architect Francois Jean Delannoy around 1823-1826. Great place to be if there are not so many people around.
  • Really interesting and unusual. Lovely shops and cafes. Beautiful architecture.
  • fav place in Places. travel in time with this place. cool shops too. Art-design options.
  • It was like going back in time! The real essence of Paris.
  • Beautiful and charming passage of Paris Just behind Palais Royal and Le Louvre. One of the shorter passages, most of the things are pretty expensive. If you like passages, also check out passage des panoramas (grand boulevards) and passage choiseul (by Rue Sainte anne).
