Private tour: Paris' wonderful covered passages

Mise à jour le 2024-05-13


Let us guide you through these secret passages and shopping arcades on a wonderful walk.


The covered passages are a set of arcades constructed between buildings to improve traffic flow and to also create shopping galleries. Located on the Rive Droite and near the main boulevards, these structures were created for wealthy clients. The passages had their heyday in the first half of the 19th century as those in Paris numbered more than 130 at the time. They were abandoned following the construction of Hausmann's great works and the emergence of department stores.

Enjoy the beauty of these passages that have been finely preserved over the years, while preserving  their authentic side. 

During a walk, crossing the 2nd and the 9th arrondissement, explore and discover many emblematic passages among those still open and accessible to the public.

Immerse yourself in the story of different restaurants and shops of the time, and at the same time discover craft trades, little known, which were transmitted over the years.

Make experience of places which you wouldn’t probably have known existed, while listening to historic anecdotes related by the guide, about people who marked the history of France. 


 What you get from this experience:

- A unique walk that allows you to go through many areas via "secret" passageways

- Discover the oldest shopping arcades that are still operating today

- A discovery of craft trades

      Nous avons beaucoup aimé la visite privée (pour un groupe de 4). Le guide était très pointu dans ses explications, passionné et respectueux de notre dynamique de groupe (pas envahissant). Je recommande !
