Rue Lepic, Paris
(4.6/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Historical Street before the Imperial name was in honor of Napoleon, but in 1864 year changed its name to Lepic (in honor of the military national hero, General, Commander of the defence of Montmartre from the Russians), remained one of the Chief in the area. Street is popular for several reasons: here is Cafe 2 mills "(House No. 15), where the action took place a famous movie" Amelie ", lived on this street van Gogh (House No. 54) and even described the view from the window on one of his paintings, the Moulin Rouge is located in house No. 73 on this street (according to urban legend) was won by bet owner Renault that his machine is easy to overcome a serious climb up the Hill that has given the popularity and gave impetus to the development of this brand.
