The 2nd arrondissement of Paris is certainly one of the most interesting districts to explore either as a tourist or as a Parisian. Among the many covered passages still having still remained after Hausmann renovation in this district, the passage Choiseul has changed a lot in the last months. Although the Bourse closed a few years ago and the Palais Brongniart became an important event and conference center, finance remains in this part of Paris. Passage Choiseul is becoming the lunch area for all the people working next door : lot of new small restaurants or take away shops from over the world. A difficult competition for old settled boutiques !
