PARIS: Glass-Covered Galleries

I feel like a broken record as I’m writing these posts.  Everything is Paris is amazing!  You’re surrounded by history wherever you go.  Maybe because I’m American that I can’t get over the architecture or history in Europe?  That’s okay by me because I love it.  Hopefully one of these days we’ll be living over there… Husband, are you paying attention? 😉

On one of our last days in the city, we decided to explore the glass-covered galleries.  These galleries, or passages, are hidden throughout Paris and were built in the 1800s, some as early as the late 1700s.  Pretty cool.

As we made our way over, we passed by KENZO and CÉLINE.  Of course I had to take pictures of their doors.  Gorgeous.  Paris, France, Europe, Travel, One week in Paris, Glassed Covered Galleries, Glass Covered Passages, Galerie Vivienne, Passage des Panoramas, Passage Jouffroy, Passage Verdeau, 2nd arrondissement, 9th arrondissementParis, France, Europe, Travel, One week in Paris, Glassed Covered Galleries, Glass Covered Passages, Galerie Vivienne, Passage des Panoramas, Passage Jouffroy, Passage Verdeau, 2nd arrondissement, 9th arrondissement

After wishing I was behind those doors, we made it over to Galerie Vivienne.  Galerie Vivienne is located in the 2nd arrondissement on Rue Vivienne and is one of the most well-known.Paris, France, Europe, Travel, One week in Paris, Glassed Covered Galleries, Glass Covered Passages, Galerie Vivienne, Passage des Panoramas, Passage Jouffroy, Passage Verdeau, 2nd arrondissement, 9th arrondissementParis, France, Europe, Travel, One week in Paris, Glassed Covered Galleries, Glass Covered Passages, Galerie Vivienne, Passage des Panoramas, Passage Jouffroy, Passage Verdeau, 2nd arrondissement, 9th arrondissement

The stores were closed and not many people were walking through so we pretty much had the place to ourselves.  Love, love, love.Paris, France, Europe, Travel, One week in Paris, Glassed Covered Galleries, Glass Covered Passages, Galerie Vivienne, Passage des Panoramas, Passage Jouffroy, Passage Verdeau, 2nd arrondissement, 9th arrondissement

Galerie Vivienne is definitely my favorite but each passage has its own unique charm.

After Vivienne, we walked just a few more minutes and discovered Passage des Panoramas off of Rue Saint-Marc.  I love the glass ceilings!Paris, France, Europe, Travel, One week in Paris, Glassed Covered Galleries, Glass Covered Passages, Galerie Vivienne, Passage des Panoramas, Passage Jouffroy, Passage Verdeau, 2nd arrondissement, 9th arrondissementParis, France, Europe, Travel, One week in Paris, Glassed Covered Galleries, Glass Covered Passages, Galerie Vivienne, Passage des Panoramas, Passage Jouffroy, Passage Verdeau, 2nd arrondissement, 9th arrondissement

Once you’re through Passage Jouffroy you’ll hit Passage Verdeau on Rue de la Grange-Batelière.  I’m pretty obsessed with these gems.  They are all so unique and charming!Paris, France, Europe, Travel, One week in Paris, Glassed Covered Galleries, Glass Covered Passages, Galerie Vivienne, Passage des Panoramas, Passage Jouffroy, Passage Verdeau, 2nd arrondissement, 9th arrondissement

Wandering the passages is such a fun activity to do!  There are so many adorable shops and restaurants to check out too if you feel like spending some money.  Have fun exploring!

My next post will cover Trocadéro and the amazing view you get of the Eiffel Tower from this location.  I can’t believe I’m almost done with my Paris posts!  Two more to go!
