What You'll Do
  • Discover the secret passages nestled behind the great boulevards of Paris
  • Learn about the history of "les passages couverts" from your local guide
  • Shop to your heart's content in the cool shops and art galleries
  • Take a break and enjoy some specialty wine and pastries at a local deli
Overview
Discover "les passages couverts," the secret passages nestled behind Parisian boulevards known for their trendy shops, cute cafes, and cool art galleries. Explore the shopping village with a local guide, and stop to enjoy some specialty wine and pastries.
What to Expect
As a visitor to Paris, you probably don't know that behind many of the chic Parisian boulevards are a gathering of charming cover-passages, or "les passages couverts," known for their hip, top-of-the-range shopping centers.

Armed with your camera and your friendly local guide, check out five of the secret passages located near the Louvre on the Right Bank. Though there used to be around 130 of them, many were destroyed an only 20 remain today, recently restored but with that distinctive French charm. The result is an atmosphere of a chic village, full of stylish shops, art galleries, and cute cafes, some of which have remained unchanged for 150 years.

As an extra bonus, your guide will introduce you to the proprietor of a gourmet food shop tucked away inside the passages where you will sit and taste a glass of wine! It will be a true taste of a 19th century shopping experience!
