The Covered Passages of Paris: Small-Group Walking Tour

You may be surprised to read that, nestled amid Paris’ busy boulevards and avenues, hides an entire network of "passages couverts": indoor pedestrian streets that are lined with shops, restaurants, bars and boutiques!  Although most of these extensive passages no longer exist, there are still small parts of them that can be found throughout the city, and to this day they welcome shoppers and curious explorers.  With the help of a guide you'll navigate these multiple passages like a pro, learning about their origins and their role in the city.  Along the way you'll be able to window-shop, and pop into places such as bookstores, chocolateries, wine cellars and antique shops, to discover centuries-old treasures and traditions.  A tasting of wine is included on this tour, to make your Parisian experience truly special.
