Rue d'Alesia, Paris

#871 of 2,001 in Things to do in Paris
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. To visit Rue d'Alesia on your trip to Paris, use our Paris trip builder website .

  • This I like very much. There are the typical Parisian Café with many nice little shops and organic supermarkets. If you are in the neighborhood, is personable a walk. Montparnasse is located a few hundred metres

  • If you want to stay in a street rather quiet., it's a good spot for the South of Paris. In this street there is everything! Shops are closed on Sunday, except for some terraces and restaurants. You'll be close to everything, one cable from Montparnasse, the 6th,... perfect to browse the capital back and forth, with a happy hour in the late afternoon. People in the neighborhood are nice. Yes! I'll be back.

  • Beautiful Avenue, with cafes, restaurants and shops. She is not in the area, there is no reason to go. If it is in the area, it's worth going at least once.

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.
