Halfway down the street on your left, you’ll see the beautiful Galerie Vivienne adjacent to the Galerie Colbert. Walk on the gorgeous mosaic tiles and feel yourself transported to the 1800s, when these covered passageways were built. They were designed to protect well-coiffed Parisienne shoppers from both the weather and carriage debris. You’ll find every Parisian delight here, including books, flowers, wine, a bistro and the pièce de résistance, a Jean Paul Gaultier shop.
