Activity description :

Would you like to discover the secrets of Paris? Our partner offers you a guided tour of secret passages and covered galleries for a unique and original stroll through the heart of the French capital.

Your visit: the capital's last covered passageways

Guided tour - 1h30 - Distance covered: 2 km - Indoors

Covered passageways are an integral part of the capital's built heritage. They are a series of passageways built between buildings toimprove Parisian traffic flow. They are home to shopping arcades.

Located on the Right Bank and close to the Grands Boulevards, these structures were designed for a wealthy clientele. In the first half of the 19th century, there were over 130 passages in Paris, but they were abandoned in the wake of the Haussmann era and the advent of department stores.

Places to visit :

  • Discover the last remaining galleries in the 2nd and 9th arrondissements.
  • Restaurants and shops of the period.

This itinerary takes you on a one-and-a-half-hour stroll to revive the appeal of these passages and galleries. As a family, with friends or as a couple, the stroll promises many surprises!
