10 Streets You Must Visit Paris, France

Once you arrive in Paris, you must fight the urge to just stay and sit at the hotel, as difficult as that may be given the fact that hotels in Paris are some of my most favorite in the world. To start your day, take a couple hours in the morning on an eloquent French balcony and sip a local cappuccino and sample a yummy croissant. But, now you are ready… get out and explore everything Paris has to offer!  I have provided a guide for the places and streets you must see while traveling through Paris.

1. Rue Cler Oriented north-south  in the 7th arrondissement of Paris , it is located halfway between the Hotel des Invalides and the Champ de Mars .You could easily do all of your food shopping along this market road. This is where chic Parisians come for local produce.

“Visiting Paris is unforgettable. The best way to do this is to walk the most beautiful and famous streets in the world.”
2. Champs-Élysées An avenue in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, France, running between the Place de la Concorde and the Place Charles de Gaulle. It is known for its theaters, cafés, and luxury shops, for the annual Bastille Day military parade, and as the finish of the Tour de France cycle race. With the Arc de Triomphe at one end and Place de la Concorde at the other. This is a great avenue for shopping but it can feel overwhelmingly long so make sure to stop for plenty of coffee breaks.

It begins at Rue Malher and proceeds northwest across Rue Pavée, Rue Ferdinand Duval, Rue des Écouffes, and Rue des Hospitalières Saint-Gervais before it ends at Rue Vieille du Temple. It is located in the heart of the Marais, the Jewish area. You should try a falafel there. The trendy window displays lure shoppers into vintage shops and concept stores.

5. Rue Bonaparte A street in the 6th arrondissement of Paris. It spans the Quai Voltaire/Quai Malaquais to the Jardin du Luxembourg, crossing the Place Saint-Germain-des-Prés and the place Saint-Sulpice and has housed many of France’s most famous names and institutions as well as other well-known figures from abroad. The street runs through the heart of the fashionable Left Bank and is characterized by a number of and elegant apartment buildings as well as being flanked by the river at one end and the park at the other. With a Pierre Hermé at one end and a Ladurée at the other, two of Paris’ most prestigious pastry shops, this a dream street for sweet tooth.
6. Rue Montorgueil A street in the 1st arrondissement and 2nd arrondissement. Lined with restaurants, cafés, bakeries, fish stores, cheese shops, wine shops, produce stands and flower shops, rue Montorgueil is a place for Parisians to socialize while doing their daily shopping. At the southernmost tip of rue Montorgueil is Saint-Eustache Church, and Les Halles containing the largest indoor (mostly underground) shopping mall in central Paris and to the north is the area known as the Grand Boulevards. While cars are not banned from the street, the priority is for pedestrians who can enjoy the cafes and shops while walking down the cobblestones. A popular market street with flower stands abound and fresh fruit. Great place to buy some food there for a dinner.

7. Avenue Montaigne Originally called the allée des Veuves “widows’ alley” because women in mourning gathered there, but the street has changed a-lot since those days of the early 18th century. The current name comes from Michel de Montaigne, a writer of the French Renaissance. In the nineteenth century, the street earned some renowned for its sparkling and colorful Bal Mabille Gardenson Saturday nights. Avenue Montaigne boasts numerous stores specializing in high fashion, such as Louis Vuitton, Dior, Chanel, Fendi, Valentino and Ralph Lauren, as well as jewellers like Bulgari and other upscale establishments such as the Plaza Athénée hotel. A shopoholic’s dream with flagship stores and pretty Parisian architecture.

Rue de Seine is a street in the 6th arrondissement. Rue de Seine is one of the most sought-after streets in Paris due to its history and very close proximity to the Louvre and other famous Parisian landmarks. The rue de Seine and surrounding streets are host to the highest concentration of art galleries and antique dealers in the world.  Other nearby famous landmarks include the Café de Flore, Les Deux Magots and the beautiful Jardin du Luxembourg. The Hotel La Louisiane at 60 rue de Seine is famous for having accommodated many notable jazz musicians and writers, including Miles Davis, Chet Baker, John Coltrane, Ernest Hemingway, Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir. This street is equally as pretty, equally as Parisian and as equally laden with pastry shops. As the name would suggest, the road leads to the river Seine and passes through the charming St Germain des Près en route. Are you more adventurous?
