Rue Lepic, Paris

4.5
#20 of 54 in Neighborhoods in Paris
Neighborhood Landmark
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.

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.
