While there are many in Paris, we stayed at an amazing apartment just a 5 minutes walk from here, so we visited frequently. It is very lively with a vast selection of restaurants, bakeries, and unique stores. Cobblestone road and for pedestrians except for taxis...More

I had read about this street, but I don't have the faintest idea how to pronounce the name. So we came there to see why it was so famous, among everything I had read about Paris. It was amazing, the nicest people, having the nicest...More

If you're in Paris with limited time, don't bother stopping here. If you're in Paris hoping to briefly feel like a Parisian you've got to go here. It's the experience of being a local summed up in a few blocks. We stayed at an Airbnb...More

Just finished a month in an apartment off this Rue and loved this area, especially the food, both fresh and prepared. Lots of choices, plus some good restaurants and a lot of cafe terrace seating. Very lively day and night.

Overall: not worth going out of your way for. Touristy, expensive for what you get, pedestrian street. Not much to offer other than a quick coffee or stop at a local supermarket.

The colourful market that takes place here on Tuesday to Saturday, along this cobbled street, is a reminder of the old Les Halles and is visited by many Paris chefs.

Rue Montorgueil is buzzing and that is because there is a lot to see, a lot to do and lots of places to eat. It is also a good route through to Les Halles and other central places.

This is our favourite market for supplies in Paris, located on Rue Montorgueil near Metro stops Sentier or Etienne Marcel. We can highly recommend Maison Collant for croissants and pastries and Strohrer for their Rhum Baba. There is also a bevvy of cheese shops (fromageries),...More

Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
Questions & Answers
Ask a question
I will be traveling in November with my Mom who I will be pushing in a fold-up wheelchair (12” rear wheels). We arrive on a Wednesday around 2pm on the Eurostar and are considering going to Rue Montorgueil to walk around and get lunch. We are then heading to the Louvre. Is there another similar location that might work better on the way to the Louvre for a wheelchair? She is able to get out and walk short distances and up/down a few steps. Will the walking route from Rue Montorgueil to Louvre work for a wheelchair (ex: not hilly)? How successful might we be at hailing a taxi from the market area? I don’t see any good backup bus routes. The rest of our plan is Louvre to Champs Elysees area hotel (taxi or bus 72 to 73). Next day: taxi or Bus 73 to 62 Notre Dame, Then taxi or Bus 27 to 72 to Eiffel Tower, noon lunch at Restaurant 58 (Mom’s request) then Bateaux Parisians Seine cruise. Bus 42 back to Gare du Nord for Eurostar return trip @ 7:15pm. Does this all seem reasonable pushing a wheelchair in November? Are there better bus routes that I'm not finding? Should we just plan on all buses with the transfers or will we have a chance at finding a Taxi? Thank you.

streets can be navigated by wheel chair with some planning. Rue Montorgueil to Louvre is almost flat. There might be few steps to walk up and down the stairs because wheel chair ramps are not located is most places. The... More

We've had success in renting from Home Away. I highly recommend the area around Rue Montorgueil, which is in the Second Arrondissement for foodies. Better central location and less expensive than St. Germain.

The bookstore is at 92-96 Rue Montmartre and is called Librarie Gourmande. Wonderful place. As for bakery items, suggest that if the large department stores aren't enough, they do have quite a range of speciality stores... More
