Galerie Colbert

4 rue Vivienne - 75002 Paris

Opéra - Grands Boulevards - 2e Arrondissement


Built in 1823, Galerie Colbert is a short walk from its main rival, Galerie Vivienne. This pretty covered arcade belongs to the Bibliothèque Nationale, and unlike other Parisian arcades, there are no shops here. Orientated towards culture, it houses the Institut Nationale d’Histoire de l’Art (INHA) and the Institut National du Patrimoine (INP). However, it is open to the public to discover the magnificent rotunda topped with a glass dome. The art nouveau style brasserie, Le Grand Colbert, is listed as a historical monument often used for cinema and is situated at the entrance to the arcade.
