Covered passages in Paris

by admin
Monday November 10th, 2014

They have been developed for only 60 years, from the late seventeenth to mid-nineteenth century.
Each passage has its own characteristics but they all have one thing in common – these are all private roads open to the public or not, depending on the private owners.
Innovative, both in architectural form and by their social role; Systematically lined with shops, the passages are places of great diversity. Mostly inhabited by floor, they mingle luxury shops, toy shops, theaters, bookshops and restaurants.
Among the sixty covered walkways that existed in their day, there remains a dozen, grouped on the right bank. Most are either classified as a historical monument, are registered as a historical monument or protected by the local Master Plan / protection of Paris.

Duration: 3 hours

People: max 4

    This is a really nice apartment for 3 people. We stayed for 6 nights and the place was perfect for our visit. There's a large bed for 2 people upstairs and a sofa bed for 1 (or maybe even 2 people) downstairs. There's a small kitchen and bathroom which was perfect for us. The area is close to St. Germain...

There's a large bed for 2 people upstairs and a sofa bed for 1 (or maybe even 2 people) downstairs. There's a small kitchen and bathroom which was perfect for us. The area is close to St. Germain which is a pretty nice area. The apartment is very close to the metro stop "Jussieu" which we used every day to get to the different places we visited in Paris. Also, the apartment has wifi which is pretty important for those who are coming from international and don't have international cell phone plans. Overall my experience in this apartment was very good and I would definitely recommend this to anyone who plans to visit Paris. March 2011 United States

    A great place to stay, quiet neighborhood but very close to so many fun places. And the nearby Jardine de Plantes is just about 5 minute walk, where you can spend fabulous times with the entire family members. Supermarkets and local restaurants are just seconds away.. The owner is very nice and helpful, we even got very good tips on...

    A great place to stay, quiet neighborhood but very close to so many fun places. And the nearby Jardine de Plantes is just about 5 minute walk, where you can spend fabulous times with the entire family members. Supermarkets and local restaurants are just seconds away.. The owner is very nice and helpful, we even got very good tips on where to spend beautiful and meaningful times in Paris and its other outer skirt places of interests. I would recommend this place for everyone and especially so if you like to wonder around the River Seine. Enjoy your time everyone...." Januar y. New York , March 2012

    My 8 year old daughter and I stayed here for two nights. The flat is comfortable although it is small. It's well positioned for the Eiffel Tower and only 1 minute walk away from the metro. Everything is provided in a compact space. Nadia is very friendly and communicative. We were met on arrival to be given a key. All...

    The surrounding of the apartment is very quite. And the location is quite amazing cuz it takes little time to walk to the Champs Elysees and the entrances of metro line 1. We enjoyed the time living there. BTW, the actual looking of the apartment is much better than in the photos. January 2014 Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China
