The longest passage in Paris (370 metres in all) is in a deplorable state; the rather eerie corridors are glass-roofed and mirror-lined, mostly hosting shabby discount clothing stores, dry cleaners and wholesale mannequin outlets whose naked wares make the whole experience more surreal. But its definitely worth a wander through, and a stop-off at the façade of the building in the Place du Caire. Instead of the usual toga-draped statues, there’s an effigy of the Egyptian God Hathor set between lotus-shaped columns.
