Paris has been an elegant shopping destination for more than 200 years. Some of this fabulous past can be seen in the city's hidden passages and galleries, old-fashioned arcades that captivate with fascinating architectural features.
The Ultimate Parisian Guide To Paris: Passage Jouffroy | Hidden in the 9th arrondissement, this is one of Paris’ many small passages, equipped with a gorgeous glass ceiling and lined with very quaint antique shops, bookstores, and candy stores.
