While enjoying beers in Cafe Bar Germaine I couldn't help but be intrigued by the beautiful passageway that is Cour Du Commerce Saint Andre .
Situated in the 6th Arrondissement ! This lovely passageway dates from 1776 ,it's a passageway that's home to small boutique businesses and one of the oldest restaurants in the city ,it runs for 120 feet and links Rue Saint Andre Arts to Boulevard Saint Germain ,architecture is so evocative ,it's most definitely a passageway to check out if you're in the area .

This pre Haussmann, passage is one of our favourites, its literally like walking back in time, the original cobblestone path, adds to the feeling, also home to Napoleons hat in one of the restaurants, also said where the guillotine was first test. Definetly a must visit.

Located in the 6th arr, (Saint-Germain-des-Prés) is this gorgeous (little) passageway (120m’s long). Walking down the original cobblestones (one of the few streets that have retained theirs), with the old store fronts and signs, give a feeling of going back in time before the Haussmann restructure of Paris.

Serendipitous find - was looking for a bakery. Amazing tiny little quirky lane with great restaurants and shops. Just off a busy street, a little oasis

I was with my daughter and daughter-in-law while they shopped at the shops along Boulevard Saint Germain when we stumbled upon this small cobblestone passageway. (I actually think one of them was looking for a particular shop that was located here.) The passageway contains some unique shops and restaurants and is very peaceful and relaxing, especially compared to the hectic pace and traffic of the nearby boulevard. While standing in a shop that sold spices, pastries and ice cream, I suddenly realized that I had actually been there before. Memories flooded back of a previous trip to Paris years ago with me standing around in nearly the exact spot as my loving wife bought spices to take back home. Oh, sweet memories!

There are many passages of Paris, each has its own story to tell. The relatively short Cour du Commerce has the back door to Le Procope, a few cafes to pass the time, and a few interesting shops. The ancient cobblestone street holds the story of the invention of the guillotine. A worth while detour especially if you are strolling the Boulevard San Germain.

This is one of my favorite Paris passageways, because of its history and ambiance, and I usually walk the 394-foot-length at least once during my stays in the city. On my most recent visit, I came in mid-morning soon after arriving from the airport. I was staying nearby and my hotel room was not yet ready.

Unlike the lively evenings here, morning offers a calm atmosphere with closed shops and restaurants. I saw only two others traversing the uneven original cobblestones that cover the 11.5-foot-wide route. I entered at 130 Boulevard St.-Germain and exited at 59 rue Saint-Andre-des-Arts. (There is also an entrance at 21 rue de l' Ancienne Comedie.) Except for the glass roof over the area where I exited, the passageway remains uncovered.

With no activity in the area, I had plenty of time to focus on the shops' facades, windows and roofs -- all historical monuments along with the three entrances and the glass roof. As a history buff, I also looked for vestiges of a12th-century city wall displayed by some buildings bordering the passageway, which opened in 1776.

Restaurants, bars and shops would become a big draw here later in the day. Perhaps the most famous is Cafe Procope, which opened in the 17th century and is considered to be the first Paris cafe.

Cour du Commerce Saint Andre is close to the Odeon metro station (lines 4 and 10).

So come and celebrate the revolution! And have a drink in one of the many charming cafes on this quiet pedestrian street. Very old Paris and just plain lovely.

I loved going through this part of town. In my opinion a must visit for foodies. There are lots of ittle shops around selling chocolates, breads, sweets, olive oils, etc. Highly recommend it!
