Sentier / Covered Passages / Bourse

Further west and north, the streets get less touristy and this is where lies the authentic heart of the Second district.

Dress the part and alight upon these refined shopping streets: Place des Victoires (and the little enclave just north of it by the church), Rue de Richelieu, Rue du Mail and Rue des Petits-Champs. Or these beautiful covered passages: Galerie Vivienne, Galerie Colbert, Passage Choiseul, and Passage des Panoramas. Indulge on noodle soup and Asian sweets on Rue Sainte-Anne, an authentic Japanese enclave.
