What Makes It Special
The precursor to Parisian shopping malls, the Passage des Panoramas is Paris' first covered walkway. With its mix of artisan shops and old-school eateries, it's a great spot to soak in French culture.

This covered arcade is really stunning, even on a dark, cold night in February. It is jam-packed with lovely restaurants, bars and shops. It’s a great place to wander through and soak up some Parisian atmosphere.

Passage des Panoramas is one of the oldest surviving Parisian 'passages couverts' (covered passages or englassed arcades), opened at the turn of the XVIIIth century, around 1799-1800, whereas most of the other Parisian 'passages couverts' sprang to life about quarter of a century later, in...More

Having a lazy strolling day today with no clear direction and stumbled upon this Passage...which of course lead to another..these are totally charming and often with their own themes.

Charming place, full of little shops, different styles and merchandises, from old antiques to new contemporary art, all with a hint of history. Worth a visit. The Grevin museum can be accesed from one of these galleries.

The Oldest of the covered Passages, but I love them all. The panoramas at the entrance have long gone and the tiled floor has worn away in many places, but worth a visit because of the interesting little shops and restaurants. Start with Gallerie Viviane...More

Passages and Montmatre (4 Replies)
Interested in seeing Galerie Vivienne, Passage des Panoramas, and Passage Jouffroy....lunching in one of the passages....then exploring Montmatre. Looking for thoughts/suggestions on how to best spend 4-6 hours, late morning to mid-afternoon.

Personally, I would start in Montmartre and then make your way down the lovely Rue Des Martyrs, onto Rue du Faubourg Montmartre where you can explore the aforementioned passages. The reason being that its downhill from Montmartre so I'd take the metro to Montmartre (Abbesses or Lamarck Caulaincourt) and walk back down.

I will be in Paris the last week of June with my husband, our daughter, her husband, and their sons, six and eleven. I've heard that two restaurants in the picturesque Passage des Panoramas in the 2d arrondissement are good and cheap. They are Bistrot des Panoramas at #10 and Bar des Varietes at #12. Anyone have any experience w/ either/both? Both good, both bad, or one better than the other?

Where have you "heard" this? And, what are your expectations for "cheap"? Restaurants in the passages tend to be tiny with cramped seating on uncomfortable chairs, and everything turns on who happens to be in command of the kitchen when you happen to be there. Best bet is to peruse the menu and observe the patrons and whether they are enjoying their meals. Recommend heading for Clementine....

Hotel and Car Rental Guidance (inside or outside Paris?) (2 Replies)
Hi, I could use some guidance with deciding whether to stay in Paris or outside the area. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help out! I will be in the Chantilly area for work and then on my own for 3 days afterwards and plan to change hotels. The one thing I really want to do while I am there is to visit the Poziere and Thiepval memorials in the Somme area. I plan to rent a car for at least one day so that I can do this at my own pace. I had then planned to explore Paris the other two...More

ERRG, Thanks for the website link. I've never asked a hotel to bring GF food in for me but I'll give it a try. With some further research (and a great points deal), I'm considering the hotel "West End". Any comments? Also, it seems I can rent a car from the Gare du Nord train station or CDG, seems that both would be easy to get to. Thanks, Jenn
