We came to this interesting passage in the 9th arrondissement in Paris by coincidence. Several shops, bars and cafes with a glass roof, hence good for a short visit especially during rainy days. Is this a helpful review? Then please give me a "Thumbs up...More

A 10 minute walk from the opera, not far from the “grandes magasins” and right near the Hard Rock Cafe you’ll find a network of magnificent “passages Parisiens,” or covered arcades built in the mid 19th century. Passage Jouffroy extends to both sides of the...More

A lovely covered passageway full of unique shops. Perfect activity if it’s raining. We strolled through several of these passageways and in this one enjoyed the toy shop. Passageways also have the worlds largest seller of dollhouse items, old books, fun antiques and vintage postcards...More

We sought out this place after reading many favorable reviews on TripAdvisor. So happy we did. Unfortunately, we didn't time our visit well and couldn't devote much time to wandering through many of the amazing shops. Artists galleries, book sellers, toys..oh so many things to...More

Really nice passage with a lot of old and fancy shops. The only place in Paris that I found a french beret (not made in China). Highly recommended.

The arcades of Paris are all that are left of Paris before Hausmann. The original shopping malls. Jouffroy includes and incredible tea room, the Musee Grevin a Marks and Spencer mini-market, book shops, a hair dresser and the Hotel Chopin.

If you are in the area or have already done all the big Paris sights, this is worth a look. But shouldn't be a priority. It's the nicest of all the covered passages in my opinion. The architecture is more of a draw than the...More

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in

The Passage is open, as are most of the restaurants, but don't know about all the shops. Some are probably closed.
