Rue St-Dominique, Paris

4.0
#634 of 2,039 in Things to do in Paris
Rue St-Dominique was renamed Rue St.-Dominique in 1631 after the Dominican monastery that opened on this street that year. The site has had many names over the years--chemin de la Longue Raye (1355), chemin des Treilles (1433), chemin Herbu des Moulins à Vent (1523), chemin de l'Oseraie (1527), chemin du Port (1530), chemin des Vaches (1542), chemin de la Justice, and chemin des Charbonniers.

The allure today stems from the fact that the street feels authentic--making visitors feel like natives as they wander past the bakeries, restaurants, shoe stores, kitchen shops, bistros, boutiques, and butcher shops. It's centrally located, close to many attractions, and offers stunning views of the Eiffel Tower.

  • We had the opportunity in this beautiful road for a few days to live. Very good shopping and great dining options in the vicinity.

  • Ugh our worst dining experience in Paris, near the Eiffel Tower...Caesar salad had a creamy sweet dressing, onion soup average at home, beef Bourgogne with spaghetti was also pedestrian. Waiter was ok...  more »
  • Awesome street. There is an abundance of interesting cafes and restaurants. Just a stone's throw from the Eiffel tower and the terrific markets on Rue Cler. Best street in Paris IMO.  more »

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.
