An old covered
Passage des Panoramas8
Why locals love it
The covered passages of Paris are remnants of times before Baron Haussmann set about transforming the city. From the 18th–19th century 150 passages were constructed, enabling wealthy people to shop regardless of the weather. Nowadays just 15 passages remain.
Why you should visit it
All of the remaining passages are located on the Right Bank. Built in 1799, this one is the oldest. You’ll find entrances at 11 Boulevard Montmartre and 158 rue Montmartre. It's incredibly charming with lots of small old boutiques, bars and restaurants.
It’s the right place to visit when it’s raining.
