- Best Attractions & Activities: "You have not experienced Paris until you've wandered through one of its historical covered passages or "galeries." They are like 19th-century shopping malls."
- Recommended as Best Attractions & Activities Because: Built in a neo-classical Pompeiian style, this passage was first inaugurated in 1826. Situated between the Palais Royal and the Bourse, this gem of a mosaic-tiled 19th-century version of a shopping mall was designated a historical monument in July 1974.
