Covered passages in Paris

daadmin
10 novembre 2014

Costruiti all’alba della rivoluzione industriale, prevalentemente in ghisa e vetro e sempre ben illuminati, i passaggi coperti di Parigi permettevano ai passanti di passare da una via all’altra, curiosare tra le vetrine o ristorarsi in un café o una brasserie protetti dalle intemperie, dalla circolazione stradale, dal rumore e dall’inquinamento.
La maggior parte dei passaggi coperti della ville lumière furono costruiti intorno al XIX secolo per offrire una protezione dal freddo e dal caos cittadino a una clientela abbastanza agiata.
Parigi conterà circa 150 gallerie coperte ed esporterà quest’originale modello architettonico in numerose altre città francesi.Questi passaggi che si sviluppano nel mezzo degli edifici prevalentemente della riva destra della Senna (soprattutto nella zona dei Grands Boulevards che ospitava le classi più agiate della società parigina) formano delle gallerie, spesso coperte da un tetto di vetro, caratterizzate da una luminosità particolarissima.
Meno frequentati e affollati in seguito alla rivoluzione architettonica operata da Haussmann e all’avvento dei grandi magazzini, queste oasi di pace sono state rinnovate e rimodellate pur sempre conservando il loro fascino insolito che consente di distrarsi lontano dall’agitazione e dalla frenesia.

    The apartment is close to a beautiful park. Unfortunately the door of the apartment is not marked, so we had quite a few problems before we found it. The metro station is close , from which you are anywhere fast. The apartment is big enough for four adults. The kitchen is good equipped but some scratched containers need to be...

    The apartment is close to a beautiful park. Unfortunately the door of the apartment is not marked, so we had quite a few problems before we found it. The metro station is close , from which you are anywhere fast. The apartment is big enough for four adults. The kitchen is good equipped but some scratched containers need to be replaced. Pull-out sofa is  comfortable. We had a really good time so that the apartment is definitely worth the money we paid. Nadia did not meet us in person but we received many of her help over the phone.

    I stayed recently at this with my mother and sister for four nights. The flat is was very comfortable, had all modern updates and was beautifully furnished and decorated. The beds were very comfortable and the flat was immaculately clean. Nadia communicated very promptly with me and although she was not available when we arrived another host met us and gave us a tour of the place. The flat is in an excellent neighborhood in Paris and is very close to so many of Paris's main attractions. The only downside of this flat was that it was quite noisy at night because it is on a very lively street. Loved the location and the design of the flat. And the great pull out couch! It might be good to have a fan for people to use in the summer. I would definitely recommend this flat - is one of the most comfortable ones I have stayed in. Thanks Nadia!

    Great flat! Great location, very clean, very cute. Really close to the metro stop (just around the corner). I stayed by myself and didn't feel unsafe at any point. Nadia is responsive and very accommodating. Overall, a perfect place to stay in Paris. Highly recommended ! Baltimore, Maryland, United States, September 2013

    We stayed in the apartment for 3 nights recently and were delighted with our choice of apartment. It is very handily located to the Latin Quarter, the Pantheon, Notre Dame and St Michel. It is within 2 minutes walk from the Metro station Cardinal Lemoine and there are many restaurants and cafes nearby, and a supermarket located around the corner....

    We stayed in the apartment for 3 nights recently and were delighted with our choice of apartment. It is very handily located to the Latin Quarter, the Pantheon, Notre Dame and St Michel. It is within 2 minutes walk from the Metro station Cardinal Lemoine and there are many restaurants and cafes nearby, and a supermarket located around the corner. Whilst the apartment is rather small it quite suited our needs as we were out and about for most of each day. Would definitely request this apartment for future visits to Paris.

    Our first experience with Nadia Bolino was amazing!!!  She was in contact with us from the time our plane landed via text to make sure we could find the apartment.  When we got to the apartment we were greeted by the owner of the flat with the key answering any questions we may have had.  The apartment was very neat and clean and plenty of space for our family of 4.  The location was fantastic with only a 5 min walk to the famous champs de Elysees and the metro was just around the corner.  I highly recommend this flat and Nadia as a host.

    We had a wonderful stay at the penthouse. The terrasse was a perfect spot to relax after a day of exploring Paris. We really liked the neighborhood--lots of cafes and bakeries, the Metro is a block or two away, and there is a beautiful park just a short walk from the flat. Nadia was a fantastic host. She was very...

    The location was great. Very easy to get around the city and to metro stations. Within 10 minutes walking distance to Notre Dame and probably 30 minutes walk to the Louvre along the Seine(took us an hour but we made lots of stops along the way for photos). The studio was small (which is what we expected) but clean. I...
