Discover the covered passages in Paris !
Largely Parisian invention, the covered passages reigned in the capital during about sixty years only, between the end of the XVIIIth century and the middle of the next century. The model is profoundly innovative in the XIXth century, as much by its architectural form as by the social role which it fills then.
Systematically lined with shops, it is exactly by what we find there that the passages seduce, well beyond their frame, so luxurious it is: the luxury trade and fashion is next to theaters, coffees and restaurants. It is this versatility which bases the identity of the passage covered, dedicated to the traffic but also to the approval.
Today, among about sixty which lives in the daytime between the end of the XVIIIth century and the middle of the XIXth century, there is only seventeen, gathered on the right bank and still allocated to their first function. Discover this famous guided tour with Calliopée.
Our tip: After a guided walking tour, a delicious pastry made for you in a tea room, at snack time would be welcome!
