Galerie Vivienne, is located between the Bourse and the Palais-Royal and is one of the nicest shopping galleries in Paris. The light is spectacular, the setting is utterly atmospheric and romantic.
Having been beautifully restored now to belle epoque splendor, today its old-fashioned charm is definitely not to be missed.
At Galerie Vivienne you will find interesting, luxurious and cool shops such as Jean-Paul Gaultier, as well as some more affordable ones. Plus a delightful tea room - A Priori Thé – where they serve amazing cheese – cakes and marvelous scones. Its tables line the corridor of the gallerie.
There is also art galleries, a book shop where you can buy old or arty books and a brilliant wine shop.
The Place des Victoires, a few steps away, is one of Paris’s most picturesque squares.
