Galerie Véro Dodat

Shopping Centre

in Louvre & Les Halles

For a quick taste of 19th-century Paris, it's hard to beat this shopping arcade, which opened in 1826 and retains its original skylights, ceiling murals, Corinthian columns and gas globe lamps (now electric). Bijou art galleries, jewellers, shoe boutiques and a music shop fill its quaint shop fronts.
