Passage des Princes

The Passage des Princes is a lovely place to visit at this time of the year. Not only is it very beautiful, it is also completely full of toy shops.

Built in 1860, this was the last covered passage built under the Haussmann era. It was destroyed in 1985 but has since been completely rebuilt using the original elements, including a gorgeous 1930’s glass dome.

I went in yesterday and it was full of children. The glass roof lets in the winter light and you can see the beautiful buildings around it through the transparence of the roof. It’s a short walk away from the big department stores, and just round the corner from the Passage des Panoramas, another beautiful passage and a great place for lunch.
