True Paris’ charm has always been in the streets and avenues that preserve the atmosphere of the city. I’ll give you a little insider knowledge on how to locate the prettiest streets.
The market road Rue Cler is perfect for food shopping. Bring a wicker basket to fill it with French delicacies like brioche, cheese, honey, etc. Make a stop to get some ice cream from Martine Lambert and feel like a true Parisian doing some chic shopping.
The list would not be complete without the prettiest and most famous street Champs-Elysees. It starts with the Arc de Triomphe and goes down to Place de la Concorde. The proximity to other landmarks is one of the reasons for its popularity.
A street made of French clichés is Rue Saint Dominique. Bakeries sell baguettes by the dozen, pastry stores put their products in the windows and you can see the Eiffel Tower nearby. This is also the home for restaurants serving classic French food.
Rue Bonaparte is a dream come true for a sweet tooth. It’s a charming street with a Pierre Herme at the one end and a Laduree at the other. Rue Montorgueil is a feast for your eyes. The market sells flowers, fruits and has the oldest pastry shop Stohrer.
I also suggest stopping at Rue Cremieux. A charming street with pastel-hued buildings decorated with the colorful shutters and plant pots. This quiet neighborhood does not offer much, but you can simply admire these beautiful houses along the cobbled passageway.
