Last Saturday, an enthusiastic A City for Her group enjoyed a 3-hour walking tour in some of the most typical and beautiful covered passages in Paris, near the Grands Boulevards.

They followed Isabelle, who first guided them through the Passage des Panoramas, which is considered the first covered walkway in Paris. Built in 1799, it has retained its old-fashioned charm and merchant spirit.
Our group could admire the ancient architecture elements, such as those of the Chocolatier Marquis and Stern printing house.
Inaugurated in 1807, the Théâtre des Variétés is still active; programming concerts and comedies.

The tour ended at the Galerie Vivienne, which is one of the most iconic covered passages in Paris. You will find it in a very quiet location, behind the Bibliothèque Richelieu and near the Palais-Royal. Our group members could admire the colourful mosaics on the ground and appreciate the beautiful glass roof and there numerous shops, i.e. tea rooms, wine cellars, grocery shops, old bookshops, ready-to-wear boutiques and much more

After the walking tour, the group enjoyed a delicious glass of wine in one of the most beautiful wine libraries in Paris and had plenty of time to network, continue their discussions, and share their professional and personal experience on Paris, work and life!

Finally, it was time for dinner, for great talks and more and more fun in a wonderful restaurant of the Passage des Panoramas!

Special thanks to Isabelle for this wonderful tour and many thanks also to all inspiring women who joined last Saturday!
We are all definitely looking for part II!

    I loved every second of this walking tour. Isabelle did a fantastic job of showing us the history of the passage – and she was kind enough to talk in both French and English, to cater for the international crowd 🙂
