1. Perusing the Passages of Paris
Passage Colbert is also beautiful, possibly more grand than Vivienne and here is the brasserie Le Grand Colbert, from the movie 'Something's Gotta Give'. Utterly romantic!
Panoramas Passage is the oldest with many restaurants and cafes and a fabulous engraver.
Jouffroy Passage specialises in toys and a great needlepoint shop, old movie posters, Lebanese pastries and the wax museum of Paris, Musée Grévin is here.
Verdeau Passages specialise in antiques, comics, musical instruments and engravings), among others.
The funkiest passage is Passage Brady, which is chock-full of Indian and Pakistani restaurants. Some recommended restos here which may be a bit too shabby for some tastes.
