Passage des Panoramas, Paris

4.1
#24 of 271 in Shopping in Paris
Passage des Panoramas is a roofed commercial passageway located between the Montmartre boulevard to the North and Saint-Marc street to the south. It is one of the earliest venues of the Parisian philatelic trade, and it was one of the very first covered, airy commercial passageways in the world. Keep in mind, while you visit, that you are viewing the precursor to all the city gallerias of the 19th century and the covered suburban and city shopping malls of the 20th century.

Over the centuries, Passage des Panoramas has been home to many famous commercial establishments and institutions such as the Académie Julian. Today, you can explore quality bars and restaurants, vintage postcard shops, and philatelist boutiques. First up is the quirky Victoria Station, where you can dine in what looks like a velvet-lined train carriage, followed by the gorgeous wood-fronted Arbre à Cannelle, Indian and Chinese restaurants, and more.

    A trip back in time. Canopies bring the brightness. Let's find them. Several passages in the same neighborhood. The shops are original.

    Back in time through its various passages of the Panoramas is may be more discreet than the passage Jouffroy, but I find it more authentic with these shops from another era and its atypical restaurant (watch the car...)

    Went there by chance then started wandering in those little covered passages. They are somewhat the ancestors of the big malls we know, created to have better shopping experience jn the 1800s you can ...  more »

    Passage des Panoramas are the oldest covered passages in Paris. Great place on a rainy day for shopping and eating. You will find here old fashion gallery, small restaurant, antic shop, second hand fashion stores and lots of fun. Check out all the passages around the area.

    It's fun place to see. Very typical for Paris and Europe in general ! If it's your first time in Europe and you're in the area, go check it out. If you're European or have visited Europe a lot it's nothing special but still very charming !

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.
