located in the 9th arr, this wonderfully colourful passage with its eclectic shops attracting locals and tourists alike, it is one of three that make up a strip, the other two being Passage Verdeau and Passage des Panoramas, all definitely a must to walk along.

We think Paris is its landmarks, Tour Eiffel, Louvre, Arc etc. But those "passages" offer a proper time travel, back in 19th Century. It is worth a visit and there also different cafes. Very nice walk with lovely shops.

One of the lovely covered passages, one of my favorite aspects of the city. This one is not all that fancy but full of quirky shops and restaurants. These passages were early shopping malls and got people off the dirty streets and into safety. People loved them in the early 19th Century and I love them now.

Browsing this arcade whilst we stayed in the area we came here a few times for groceries from Marks and Spencer and also found this lovely shop where I bought some stone frogs made from minerals I hadn't seen. Worth a look, friendly people and I think there is guided tours of this too.

One of our favourite things to do on a rainy day was visit the covered passages, this one, (built in 1845) is a little plain, however, has the bestest book store.

Built in 1836, this walkway has a beautiful iron and glass architecture and also an interesting marble paving. It also houses interesting shops such as Galerie Fayet that sells antique umbrellas and canes.

We stumbled upon the covered passageways after spending time in Montmartre and, as it was a rainy day, felt it a perfect place to wander. They seem to go on forever. They are most charming, with lots of places to poke around, shop, and eat. Great on a rainy day. And when you finally come out, you have to figure out where you are!

The Passage Jouffroy is a covered walkway (alley) with many boutique shops on both sides. It has a glass roof with natural sunlight and the shops sell unique merchandise and handicrafts. Must visit and see.

Continuing on from the Passage des Panoramas, and before entering the Passage Verdeau, you will find this passage, which is slightly different in architecture.

It starts out as a straight line under a beautiful glass roof and wider than the Panorama passage - maybe as it was built almost half a century later, and the success of the passages required more space for visitors. It then takes a sharp turn and down some stairs before continuing towards the exit - where you can access the next passage across the street.

It is less richly decorated than the others - again maybe time had proven success was enough to attract clients; but also here you will find booksellers and several shops with posters - old and new.

It has an intriguing little hotel right inside it - must be a special place to spend your nights!

Another novelty here was the use of steel and glass - and it has heating in the floor to make it very attractive to stay inside and spend hours on shopping!

It has been restored back to its original condition and hopefully it will remain as such as now being cultural heritage.

I stayed at Hotel Chopin in October 2019 with my father and brother. To access the latter, one needs to walk through Passage Jouffroy.

The passage itself - like Hotel Chopin - dates back to the 1800s and it shows between its worn tiles, ironwork and decorations. For those who’ve been to Melbourne and seen/liked the Royal and Block Arcades, you’ll love Passage Jouffroy.

It’s filled with an assortment of stores including bookstores (not chain ones like Barnes & Noble or Dymocks; think leather bound tomes and older but popular books like Tin Tin), patisseries, jewellery and antiques. It also has an M&S Food Hall, which was great for buying bottled water and snacks while we were in Paris.
