5 boulevard des Italiens - 75002 Paris
Opéra - Grands Boulevards
The history of the Passage des Princes has been very eventful. Built in 1860 and then destroyed in 1985, it was finally rebuilt to look exactly the same in 1995. A stone's throw from the Palais Garnier opera house and the large Parisian departments stores, its architecture goes perfectly with the beautiful Haussmannian buildings found in this district. Considered as the Mecca for games, this covered arcade houses numerous shops dedicated to toys, scale models, video games and more. A delight for children but also for adults who are still children at heart. It is also accessible via 97 Rue de Richelieu.
