Nestled in the heart of Paris's 2nd arrondissement, the Galerie Vivienne is leading towards rue Vivienne, rue des Petits-Champs and rue de la Banque. You can not miss it !
Ideally located between the Royal Palace and the Grands Boulevards, the Galerie Vivienne, built in 1823 under the architect Jean Delannoy's instructions received the title of Historic Monument in 1974. A well deserved title given the beauty of the place !
The gallery practically remains unchanged, which might be the reason why so many visitors have been coming over the past two centuries. Shoemakers, tailors, florists, restaurants, teahouses.... The gallery keeps on surprising its visitors by reinventing itself. The key to success ? Perhaps, since it is one of the only enclosed shopping malls that works as well in Paris.
