Rue St-Dominique, Paris

(4.5/5 based on 65 reviews on the web)
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.

  • On another side and benefiting especially at night from a point of view unusual on the Eiffel Tower, this shopping street is nice to meet in Parisian life swarming, a lot of small restaurants and bars, a street that is worth trying.
