We love this area and have stayed here many times on our travels to Paris. The variety of food markets along this street makes my heart soar. At 5:00 the cafes fill up with cool young people hanging out. Lots of affordable restaurants are nearby....More

Start off your walk with a nice pain au chocolat at the boulangerie on the corner near the entrance to Rue Montorgueil, and then munch your way along the street! Lots of vendors, everything from produce to a butcher, a great cheese shop and a...More

My daughter wanted to see ‘pretty Paris’ that she had been dreaming about. Rue Montegueil provides a slice of prettiness. Excellent street for people watching on a Sunday morning. Brazilian Capoeira dancers passed by, great meal at corner Cafe Bianco and just a great atmosphere...More

So many fine restaurants and shops and not least the oldest bakery in Paris. Must be visited by a stay in Paris.

One of the best, busiest, and true Parisian streets : lots of locals, great choice of different variety of cafes, shops, even some grocery stores. Highly recommend to visit, especially if you are staying somewhere nearby.

While there are many in Paris, we stayed at an amazing apartment just a 5 minutes walk from here, so we visited frequently. It is very lively with a vast selection of restaurants, bakeries, and unique stores. Cobblestone road and for pedestrians except for taxis...More

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in

Questions & Answers
Ask a question
I will be traveling in November with my Mom who I will be pushing in a fold-up wheelchair (12” rear wheels). We arrive on a Wednesday around 2pm on the Eurostar and are considering going to Rue Montorgueil to walk around and get lunch. We are then heading to the Louvre. Is there another similar location that might work better on the way to the Louvre for a wheelchair? She is able to get out and walk short distances and up/down a few steps. Will the walking route from Rue Montorgueil to Louvre work for a wheelchair (ex: not hilly)? How successful might we be at hailing a taxi from the market area? I don’t see any good backup bus routes. The rest of our plan is Louvre to Champs Elysees area hotel (taxi or bus 72 to 73). Next day: taxi or Bus 73 to 62 Notre Dame, Then taxi or Bus 27 to 72 to Eiffel Tower, noon lunch at Restaurant 58 (Mom’s request) then Bateaux Parisians Seine cruise. Bus 42 back to Gare du Nord for Eurostar return trip @ 7:15pm. Does this all seem reasonable pushing a wheelchair in November? Are there better bus routes that I'm not finding? Should we just plan on all buses with the transfers or will we have a chance at finding a Taxi? Thank you.

streets can be navigated by wheel chair with some planning. Rue Montorgueil to Louvre is almost flat. There might be few steps to walk up and down the stairs because wheel chair ramps are not located is most places. The... More

We've had success in renting from Home Away. I highly recommend the area around Rue Montorgueil, which is in the Second Arrondissement for foodies. Better central location and less expensive than St. Germain.

The bookstore is at 92-96 Rue Montmartre and is called Librarie Gourmande. Wonderful place. As for bakery items, suggest that if the large department stores aren't enough, they do have quite a range of speciality stores... More
