This region is like the books and the movies and the dreams you had in your heart of what Paris would be like: cafes and restaurants; open-air markets with fruits, vegetables and fish; friendly little hotels; easy access to the subway and a short walk to the river; buildings with Mansard roofs and the Eiffel Tower. It's lively in the... More

Fromagerie, bakeries, produce shop, fish - wine, of course, and chocolate. Restaurants with a local feel. We ate at our favorite every night for a week- working through their specials off the mirrored wall. Started each day with a croissant and coffee - and an egg since we are American and they had a deal. (We don't eat eggs much... More

We rented a flat for ten days in the area and always shopped for food and groceries here: especially good are the following shops: Magasin Davoli and la Poissonnerie La Sablaise. Try them!

Not far from the Eiffel Tower, this short pedestrian-only stretch of butcher shops, cheese shops, bakeries, and restaurants gives you plenty of reasons to dally & soak in the ambiance. Grab a small wheel of cheese, a baguette, and a bottle of wine, then head back towards the Parc Du Champ de Mars for a picnic.

If I go back to Paris I will... More

We purposely stayed in this area for the neighborhood, close to Metro for sightseeing, can walk to Eifel tower (a mile+). Very French neighborhood, local shops, a few tourists, but they spread out. Nighttime was busy at restaurants, so we generally went down the street.

This street is full of food, flowers, gifts and anything else you could possibly want! Many locals buying their daily groceries as well as tourists taking it all in!

Its very close to Eiffel tower and we could easily walk down to it.The street is buzzing with people specially each morning and evening.There are shops selling fruits,vegetables and flowers in the morning. Each evening the the numerous restaurants and cafes bring this street to life.
