Paris has remained the world’s centre of fashion since the 18th century. Discover its lesser-known fashion gems in the capital’s hidden streets on this Walking Tour in the Parisian Covered Passages.

On this 1-hour guided walking tour of Paris’ hidden streets, you’ll discover the quirky history of the 19th district of Paris. Learn about how these paths were forged as a way of escaping the hustle and bustle of the city into an oasis of calm. Famed for its glorious architecture, these streets became a commercial meeting spot for intellectuals and romantics. Uncover their stories while walking on a little-known route around the city.

 

Highlights

Working your way northwards, you will visit:

Galerie Vivienne - Built in 1823 in neo-classical style. This building, filled with luxury boutiques, is now registered as a national monument.

Passage Choiseul – Experience 190 meters of shops bathed in light from the glass roof above.

Passage des Panoramas – Visit this historic street, dating back to 1799. Its ornate architecture and incredible dining are sure to delight tourists.

Passage Jouffroy – Discover this simple glass and iron, impossibly narrow structure. It houses a small wax museum.

Passage Verdeau - The final passage you’ll visit, and the least busy, allows you to relax back into the rest of your day.
