What to expect

Discover in these covered passages the history and beauty of Paris with an expert who will guide you through those amazing remains from the early- 19th century! The “so-parisian” first department stores that inspired lots of other cities in France.

After the French Revolution, Paris needed to be rebuilt, and the Napoleonic period marked the start of this rebirth. Those covered passages are part of this new way of life! With a clever concept of galleries, people are able to pass from one locality to the other, and to enjoy a pedestrian walkway full of shops, away from the bad weather and noisy cars! You will be introduced to the beautiful architecture that used to be the place-to-be in the XIXth century! Covering three different arrondissements (districts) from first to ninth, your guide will show you a selection of six of them and tell you all about their history and amusing facts!

Get carried away in this enchanted world of ingenious and convenient shopping that marked the century of the Industrial Revolution!
