4.8/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web
Named for the seventh-century archbishop of the city, Rue Saint-Romain runs near the city's cathedrals. The street is so picturesque that it's been captured the eye of many famous painters over the years, including Camille Pissarro , Eugène Boudin, and Charles Pinet.
