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. To visit Rue de la Huchette on your trip to Paris, use our Paris vacation trip planner.

    It is a lively street in the Latin quarter, perhaps the most representative, with some souvenirs but mainly with lots of restaurants that prepare food of all ethnicities, beginning, obviously from French cuisine. Don't miss to visit both the way in and of itself, and to eat a good meal, and because hub of neighborhood and close to several other major attractions. Like everything in Paris, a few steps from the Metro!

    It begins at the small bridge of Cardinal Lustiger face Notre Dame for lead at the level of the fontaine St. Michel. It is a pedestrian street with restaurants, shops, the theatre of Huchette, piano bar Ralais of the Huchette and the famous "Caveau de la Huchette" with his jazz music. It is certainly more lively in the evening but like so many other streets in Paris. There is really nothing special... Come by metro or RER station "Saint Michel Notre Dame".

    A tourist street that leads us to a typical romantic Paris. The street is short and full of restaurants with good menus for beginners in French cooking (like us).

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.
