Galerie Vivienne, Paris

4.5
#16 of 308 in Shopping in Paris
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. Put Galerie Vivienne on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Paris online trip planner .

  • The galerie Vivienne is really a beautiful building of the mid 19th century and has a number of shops, cafés and restaurants. Sits just behind the garden of the palais royal. A really pleasant ride.

  • 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 wi...  more »
  • This gallery draws attention for its design and the possibility of taking a city of Paris something less touristic. There is a simple restaurant that offers a very French food.

  • Very nice place, couple of good restaurant, expensive but you pay the location.
  • 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.

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.
