Rue Lepic, Paris

(4.7/5 based on 100+ 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.

  • One of the emblematic streets of Montmartre, nice, cute, plunges fully into the atmosphere of Paris. So it seems that because corner will leave Monet or Manet, or Jean-Paul Sartre. Awesome feeling. It is a pleasure to stroll through it

  • If like me you are claustrophobic to avoid the 1200 steps leading to the exit of the Abesses metro, you can choose to go up on foot by this lovely street that makes you discover the Montmartre district differently, you will find a small restaurant to avoid those in the Place du Tertre traps to tourists. You can also go through one of the attractions of the area the market of the Butte street of the three brothers where the grocery store where turned scenes of the film "Amélie Poulain".

  • It's a nice street full of pretty shops at the very beginning selling various staff, then becoming more quiet while climbing up to the basilica. Some famous artists used to live here some time ago. Ni...  more »
