Galerie Vivienne Tours

Galerie Vivienne
Located in the 2nd Arrondissement, the Galerie Vivienne is one of the most iconic covered passages in Paris. Built in 1823 in a neoclassical Pompeian style, the 176-meter long passage features an elegant canopy, mosaic tile floors, paintings and sculptures depicting trade-related scenes and a rotunda with images of goddesses and nymphs. The arcade was originally home to a variety of shops, including tailors, cobblers, wine shops, confectioners and bookstores and enjoyed a great deal of success due to its prime location near the Vanel de Serrant Hotel. While many of its most prestigious shops eventually moved elsewhere, the passage was reborn in the 1960s.

Today, it offers a sophisticated and cozy shopping experience, with shops ranging from clothing boutiques to grocery shops to the old Jousseaume bookstore, one of only two original stores remaining. The other, the Legrand Filles and Fils delicatessen, existed before the gallery was even built.

Practical Info

The Gallerie Vivienne is located behind the Bibliotheque Richelieu and near the Palais Royal. It can be reached from the Bourse Metro station and has entrances off the rue des Petits-Champs, rue de law Banque and rue Vivienne.
Address: 4 Rue des Petits Champs/5-7 Rue de la Banque/6 Rue Vivienne, Paris, France
Hours: Daily 8:30am-8:30pm
