There are many lovely boutiques and art galleries on this quaint, narrow street. It is a great place to window-shop or pick up a artisanal gift...or just watch the people go by.

A pleasant street to walk with many interesting shops and restaurants, although significant construction was going on during our recent visit. In summer this is a very busy area in the Old Quarter.

there is a small lot on the street itself. If you get there before 8 there is parking. Pay the attendant. The easiest, park on Sherbrook, car is safe there and walk down the 10 minutes.
