Some places firmly resist the passage of time: the Galerie Vivienne is definitely one of those places. Built in 1823, filled with shops, far from the urban commotions, it was the ideal place for wandering Parisians.

The opening of department stores marked the end of Parisian galleries.

The calm that reigns along the Galerie Viviene gives it a rare out-of-time quality and allows you to immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the French Second Empire.
