Rue Lepic, Paris

4.4
An ancient road, Rue Lepic, climbs the hill of Montmartre from Boulevard de Clichy to Place Jean-Baptiste-Clément. It's had several names over the years, gaining its current one in 1864 in honor of Gen. Louis Lepic. This is also a street filled with history. Painter Vincent Van Gogh lived here (No. 54) from 1886 to 1888. Car manufacturer Louis Renault won a bet here in 1898--that his invention was capable of climbing up the slope of the road. (It did, and he received 12 orders for the car on the spot). Also, the 2001 film "Amélie" starring Audrey Tatou (the highest-grossing French subtitled film ever released in the United States) was filmed at the brasserie Café des 2 Moulins at No. 15.

  • One of the most famous streets of Paris, she goes, she turns, it is ideal to discover Montmartre. It starts from the square white (with the Moulin Rouge) and ends in the place du Tertre at the top of the mound. There is full of restaurants, shops and sights. We walk past the mill of Galette and the Moulin Radet. 54 Van Gogh and his brother Théo as home. Very closely, at the top you take the Willow Street, there is the House Rose and rue Cortot the Museum Montmartre. It is a nice walk in a Paris of the 19th century.

  • The road leading to Montmartre. At one time there lived famous artists, today is a street like many others but just because to bring the sacred heart takes on a peculiar charm. For most walkers since it's all uphill.
