One of the first covered arcades or shopping malls in Paris. Quaint as hell, fun to browse the shops and vintage postcards, lots of good places to eat. All the little architectural details are interesting, if you like to take pictures of slightly eroded glazed tiles and old iron lamp posts. It's really pleasant to walk through or sit and... More

The various passages all seem to be an eclectic mixture of small antique or collector shops and a variety of places to eat. We stayed in an apartment located in a rear lane that was actually immediately adjacent to the Passage des Panoramas, so it became a daily routine for the family to go there for meals and late night...

If you like historic arcades then you should definitely head for here. The passages are like stepping back in time. Very quaint and beautiful with lots of shops and cafes to stop off and take a break. It can get busy, we were there at lunch time and it was chaotically busy with tourists and locals alike. Felt very safe... More

A string of 3 or so of these old style arcades with cafes, antique shops etc, pleasant enough place to stroll through, very similar in feel to the Victorian arcades in Cardiff.

We found this through a TV program on PBS and just had to see these passageways ourselves. It was a warren of shops, cafes and more. Spent better part of the day here.

Of all the passages we were in, this one by far is the livelyest . Especially at lunch time. There are many places to eat here. We really enjoyed NoGlu since my wife cannot have wheat.

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.

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.

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

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.
