This "passage" is next door to Passage Vivienne. It is very lovely, but not as ornate. There are no shops or restaurants because it is used by the Sorbonne University for classes.

One of Paris' gems, this is one of the prettiest covered passages, a remnant of the early 19th Century when shoppers and diners got off the dirty streets and came inside to be entertained. Some lovely unique shops here.

This might be the most beautiful of the amazing covered passages in Paris due to the stunning design. Not a lot of shopping or eating here, just pretty architecture. Come and see all the passages, one of my favorite features of Paris.

The only Galerie that required a security check. Not sure why but our bags were checked before entering the Galerie. It was very beautiful but part was roped off. We visited as part of a self-guided tour of the galeries and passage.

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
