Rue Montorgueil, Paris

4.1
#43 of 294 in Sightseeing in Paris
Landmark Tourist Spot
Lined with restaurants, cafes, bakeries, fishmongers, cheese shops, wine shops, produce stands, and boutiques, Rue Montorgueil is a historic street with an authentic feel. Impressionist painter Claude Monet depicted the street in his 1878 painting by the same name. The northern end is known as the Grand Boulevard, and the southern end has an enormous shopping center and open-air market. While the area offers modern conveniences, it has resolved to preserve its rich heritage of historical buildings and little village-style nooks.

  • Great street to explore and grab lunch. Would definitely recommend it if you want to leave the tourist areas.  more »
  • I just love this street where you can find everything (and more) to eat and drink, home or at a restaurant ! The nickname of the street "gluttonous street" is definitely appropriate!  more »
  • It existed already in the 12th century. "With a length of about 400 meters, you will find shops of food,"at the Palace of the fruit", spirits, bakery, coffee shops"at Cancale Rock""The compass", the former Bistro ' grid Montorgueil", bistro brasserie, Bistro-restaurant "Les n'est" "to the barrels of the Halles," brewery "Saint Eustache tip", brewery-restaurant "The esplanade Saint Eustace", café restaurant pizzeria "La Perla", "Jet Lag", fishmonger, butcher, restaurant "The snail", a "Italian Food" , pizzeria "Caldo Freddo", shops "clothing"Guess"and"Naf Naf", the old"Stohrer"bakery at no. 51... a hotel." Not to mention the "passage of the Queen of Hungary" to no. 17 with beautiful sculptures on the façade and early street painting on ceramic "the planter" from 1890, sign of exotic products including coffee shop. This painting was ranked as historical monument in 1984. This street leads to the District of les Halles and the parish Saint Eustache. A nice walk. Come by metro, station "Trail".

  • One of Paris best secrets
  • Mostly touristy now
  • The place that I liked most in Paris, simple as that. We are passionate about food and get to know the local culture. In this market/street you find everything. It's a charm, Parisians get off work and spend the evening in the bars. Going back for sure. The place I liked the most in Paris, simple as that.

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.
