Discover shopping meccas in the world fashion capital’s hidden alleyways

Your Go Paris pass includes:

  • A 1-hour guided walking tour of Paris’ covered passages.

 

This fashion-forward city is famed for its shopping almost as much as it is famed for its glorious architecture. However, there is a little known pedestrian circuit in the heart of the Parisian Galleries where you can find hidden gems.

Join this guided walking tour to learn the peculiar history of these covered arcades, and unearth a little slice of Paris that many locals don’t even know!

Working your way northwards, you will visit:

Galerie Vivienne - built in 1823 in neo-classical style filled with luxury boutiques - now registered as a national monument. 

Passage Choiseul - 190meters of shops bathed in light from the glass roof above.

Passage des Panoramas - dating from 1799 with particularly ornate architecture and sumptuous dining options.

Passage Jouffroy - a simple glass and iron structure that is quirkily narrow yet houses a petite wax museum

Passage Verdeau - the final passage you’ll visit - a breath of fresh air as it is likely to be the least busy!

Your fabulously knowledgable guide will reveal to you how these arcades were built from architectural challenges in the city and the need to create calm spaces where the well-heeled could escape from the hustle and bustle of Parisian streets. 

Tours take place in English and French.
