The Galerie Vivienne in Paris, Home of Vidocq ?


The Galerie Vivienne is a passage in the second arrondissement of Paris.
Built in 1823 by Marchoux, President of the Chamber of Notaries, with the architect Francois Jean Delannoy.
Neo-classical Pompeian style.
Located between the Palais Royal, the stock exchange and the Grands Boulevards.

The monumental staircase of No. 13 led to the former home of Eugène François Vidocq, a famous criminalist whose life story inspired Victor Hugo and Honoré de Balzac.

And some luxury shops (Jean Paul Gaultier, Yuki Torii…) a lovely tearoom (A Priori Thé) and a wineshop (Cave Legrand Filles et Fils).
