Worth a visit if you are in the area. Wouldn't travel for it though. Really nice old building. You will get off the Main Street. I recommend the cozy little book shop a bit in.

Verdeau passage in the neighborhood of main boulevards, named after its creator. Built in 1847, it is one of the most charming walkways of the capital. It is located in the extension of two other well-known passages: Panoramas and Jouffroy. These sites form all three original place of stroll. Many antique and unusual shops (old books, old postcards, collection of... More

We visited the Passage Verdeau twice as most of the shops are not open on a Sunday. We had a lovely interlude in the umbrella shop, very interesting and the owner is a delightful gentleman. There are lots of interesting shops in the vicinity, including a great "dollar" shop which we thought was fascinating, seeing all sorts of merchandise at... More

I was getting shown around Paris by a friend and she showed me this place, which was cool because I would never had found it if I was just wandering around on my own. The passage has that old and elegant vibe and it’s a shame that it’s not being used to it’s full potential. The shops were mostly deserted... More

It is good to get off the busy street for a change in atmosphere. The narrow passage evokes more intimate atmosphere and people pay a different, more individualized type of attention to the variety of stores the passage offers. We enjoyed exploring it.

I like this very old fashioned passage not least because here you will find the shop "Le Bonheur des dames" which sells beautiful embroidery and cross stitch kits. I enjoy visiting this shop and have bought a kit.

If you like antiques, old books and getting a taste of past époques, then you should visit this little gem. Although the surrounding roads are populated, you can easily ignore this passage and miss a unique atmosphere. The passage continues to passage panorama, when you can find a bistro to have lunch. Better visit this before the evening, because a... More

Staying in Opera / Bourse

Neighbourhood Profile
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 another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
