Description of the walking tour

Visit the sumptuous gardens of the Royal Palace and enjoy a stroll through the beautiful covered passages.

Visit with your smartphone in your pocket and follow the voice of your guide. All commentaries trigger automatically, right where they happened!

200 years ago, Paris had nearly 150 covered passages! Frozen in time since the 1800s, these glass-roofed & paved arcades were originally created for the nobles to enjoy a stroll and a little shopping, away from the sun and rain.

Put on the boots of a 19th century Parisian to stroll through the Royal Palace and the most beautiful passages!
