The ambiance of les passages is lovely too....calm and laid back...not too flashy....they're good places to stroll. Moreover, they're dry and warm....the very reason why they were built.
So...here's my final post on les passages...Passage du Grand Cerf.
Passage du Grand Cerf is, in my view, one of the loveliest arcades....it's just up from the rue Montorgueil street marché...and is filled with stylish arts, crafts and antique shops selling all manner of things....jewellery, antiques, vintage lunettes, clothing, flowers etc.
It's retained its old world glamour too. It has beautiful wrought-iron work, a glass roof and lovely old 19th century shop fronts.
And le pas sage, a small bistro at the end of the arcade, is the perfect spot to kick back, enjoy the plat de jour and people watch. That's exactly what Pierre and I did....and I have to tell you it was a trés bon thing to do on a cold, wet day in Paris.

up to rue Montorgueil for those essential pastries et al.
|Strolling in Paris.....one of the best things to do in this city...|

condition from 1950s, 60s, 70s and 80s.
it's all here.
