Past and Present in Paris Galerie Vivienne

Just next door on rue des Petits-Champs, Galerie Vivienne is a more lively and luxurious twin sister to Galerie Colbert.

It’s a beautiful place full of beautiful shops.

While window shopping, take a look down on the mosaic floor, which is signed G. Faccina.

If you feel tired or thirsty, just coming in, you can stop at Bistrot Vivienne

Which also provides tables inside

And if you’d rather have some tea than a glass of wine, walk a little further, and sit under the glass roof at “A priori thé

At a crossing is a bookshop which sells old books and postcards.

and next to it another bookshop that sells and buy old books too, and has a funny old sign

And going further this way, the most stylish shop of all is Jean-Paul Gaultier.

Following its window, you go out on rue Vivienne, once again close to Galerie Colbert.
