4.2
#231 of 298 in Sightseeing in Paris
Landmark Tourist Spot
A major street in the south of Paris, Rue d'Alesia runs along the entire east-west length of the XIVe arrondissement and is one of the few streets in Paris named after a French defeat, or more precisely, a Gallic defeat: the Battle of Alesia. On this strip of shops, you will discover great finds for discounted prices. In addition to clothing, find stores for shoes, bags, accessories, and even wine. When your feet get tired, head to one of the charming cafés and enjoy some refreshments.

Regular destinations like movie theaters, hotels, and fast food restaurants are onsite as well. Rue d'Alesia is also quite popular with the locals, so you won’t be crowded by tourists all day. Put Rue d'Alesia and other Paris attractions into our Paris itinerary builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
