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!

We stayed in Rue Cler during our 3 day visit to Paris. 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.
