#500 of 2,001 in Things to do in Paris
One of the oldest streets on the Left Bank, Rue de la Huchette is a narrow pedestrian passageway full of quality eateries and bars. You will love finding a place to rest your feet and grabbing a bite to eat on this picturesque street. If you’re looking for a nighttime activity, you can head here for the intense night life with no less than four pubs and many bars.

This site is also best known for its numerous Greek restaurants whose owners sometimes stand outside shattering cheap plates to attract customers. There are plenty of falafel stands and take-away joints as well.

For a bit of history, look for building 10, where Napoleon Bonaparte was said to have stayed between 1794-1795. Put Rue de la Huchette into our Paris travel route planning app and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Beautiful shopping street in the Latin quarter. The Huchette Street is legendary, even though many restaurants are a tourist trap. For jazz lovers: the vault is a must

  • If you are at Notre Dame or Sainte Chapelle or anyplace on the Ile de la Cite, just walk over the bridge and the first street to hit you will be rue de la Huchette. Nice to stroll along the cobbleston...  more »

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.
