Interesting & worth a visit

Fun shops (and you can bargain on prices in many cases) and some very nice restaurants for lunches. Worth a visit just for the historical setting, and right next to the Metro stop.

Visiting the Passage des Panoramas is like time traveling to the late 19th Century. It's one of the best places in Paris to shop for oddities and antiques. You have quite a collection of art books, doll houses, jewelry, Marseille soap, cute vintage objects etc.

Yes, it was built as a Theater (sort of) to allow the public to shop, walk and watch the large Panoramas (a technology preceding cinema). An American, William Thayer purchased the space at the entrance of Blvd. Montmartre and built this covered passage going between l’Opera & La Bourse in the first year of the XIX Century. The covered place... More

Stepping into this covered passage is like stepping into the past of the Belle Epoque. The wooden exteriors of stores and vintage inspired signs really made this a unique shopping experience. Among the eclectic stores, you can find vintage postcards, vintage clothes and jewelry, cross stitch, and stamps and coins. Also, if eating while there, check out L'arbre a Cannelle,... More

Walked through and found a cool vintage book store! Full of old French comic books and children's books. A specialty cross stitch store with amazing embroidered work. I really appreciated the artistry. There were cafes, antique stores, jewelry stores, and culinary store! Worth the trip!

19th century Paris had about 150 covered passages turned shopping arcades, out of the weather and the very dirty streets. About 20 arcades are left. Get the list, circle them on your map, and duck into them when you can! Passage des Panoramas is at the Grands Boulevards metro stop, just down from the Theatre des Nouveautes, where we saw... More

Having been to Paris many times before I never knew these Passages were here. We did a passage walk including Jouffroy, Vivienne, Verdeau. Loved them all, great eclectic group of stores. A great idea to walk through them on a miserable rainy day in Paris.

Before visiting Paris for the first time in 1985, I found an article about the Passages in Paris. They sounded like really cool and drug my Parisian friend to one of them... and she didn't even know that they existed. I remember all kinds of interesting shops with different sorts of wares than most Parisian shops. I loved how it... More

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
