Paris’ covered passages are private streets that don’t belong to the city, with most of them closed off in the evenings.
These pearls of Parisian architecture are hidden between the Grands Boulevards and the Palais Royal. Mysterious labyrinths and luxurious galleries house timeless boutiques: stamp collectors, curiosity shops, art dealers, and antique books.
Your guide will take you on a stroll through these passages, away from modern life and noise, under the cover of glass. Cross entire blocks of buildings while protected from the elements, and relive the history of the XIX century Parisian bourgeoisie.
Real estate speculation in the gardens of the Palais Royal: it all started here. In a torrent of iron, mosaic, and glass, find out why these passages became famous around the world.
