An unusual walk in Paris
A Parisian heritage to discover!
In the 1st, 2nd and 9th districts of Paris

How many covered passages are there in Paris? 21 covered passages are open to the public. When it is chilly or that it rainsIt is a place of refuge in Paris. An original and unusual walk under cover! Attention, some covered passages are closed on Sundays. They sheltered shops in the 19th century for wealthy families. They can be found on the right bank of Paris, mainly on the Grands-Boulevards side but also in the Montorgueil district with the passage of the Grand Cerf (one of our favorite passages).
