About this spot
Of the nineteenth-century passages that remain in Paris, Galerie Vivienne is the most beautiful. The passage dates from 1823. The covered shopping street has managed to preserve the atmosphere of a bygone era, while the world around it began to take on a different face. Over the years, Galerie Vivienne slowly began to decay. A large-scale restoration in the sixties of the last century has ensured that Galerie Vivienne will hopefully be preserved for a long time. Galerie Vivienne is a richly decorated passage that is mainly decorated in a neoclassical style. The floor is beautifully inlaid with mosaic and the arches, domes and glass roof provide a warm appearance.

The range of shops is definitely worth it. For example, Jean Paul Gaultier and Yuki Torii have shops in Galerie Vivienne. On the corner where two corridors of the passage meet, there is a bookshop where you can buy antique books. With A Priori Thé, Galerie Vivienne has one of the best tea rooms in Paris.
