This is the way we like to experience a city - with the locals, like the locals. Ate at Cafe Central and was very good.

As avid "Foodies" my partner and I loved exploring Rue Cler Market on a Sunday morning. So many beautiful little shops and stalls packed full of beautiful wines, cheeses, pastries and fresh produce. Could definitely get myself into trouble here with my caloric intake!!

Rue Cler is a "must do" for tourists! Lovely pedestrian street with an assortment of cafés, flower markets, fruit stands, patisseries, cheese stores. I rented an apartment in the 7th not far from Rue Cler and enjoyed getting fresh fruit, bread, cheese and flowers. There's even an Amorino gelatoria there! Lovely place where the locals and tourists shop!

We stayed close by and this was our default place to wander of an afternoon/evening. It is filled with all manner of shops selling fresh produce - meat, fish, cheese - there is even a shop selling various (expensive) smoked salmon. Added to this are the multitude of bars and restaurants and there is a true mix of local culture... More

What a great little place to shop and eat. It was only a block or so from our hotel. It was bustling with people eating and shopping and visiting. We love that little place.

We had the privilege of staying in an apartment along the Rue Cler. We enjoyed fresh bread every morning for breakfast. Once we left our apartment, we stopped at the fruit stands to pick up our daily assortment of fresh offerings, from all of Europe. Clementines from Spain OUR FAVE. Try to stay in a neighborhood when traveling to Paris.... More

After leaving the Eiffel Tower, my daughter and I wandered over to this beautiful little street. It was pretty in January so I can't even imagine what it looks like in the Spring. It's worth a visit if you are in the area. Lots of nice cafes, shops and markets.

Rue Cler is a pretty Parisiene street in the 7th arrondisement. Boasting a famous street food market, lovely cafes, restaurants & shops as well as an ideally central location (close to the Eiffel Tower, Ecole Militaire, etc), this is a beautiful place to visit when in Paris. Recommended!

Staying in Tour Eiffel / Invalides

Neighborhood Profile
Tour Eiffel / Invalides
With the Eiffel Tower at its core, the Invalides area of Paris is guaranteed to impress. Golden towers and Baron Haussmann's urban vision meet military precision, stretching avenues, and luscious lawns. The area boasts the Musée D’Orsay, the tomb of Napoleon, the National Parliament and UNESCO, as well as luxurious, exclusive residences. In fine restaurants and at the weekend markets, families, diplomats, and politicians brush shoulders with the tourists who come to see this postcard-perfect area for themselves.
