The whole street is absolutely adorable. It was so fun to stroll along the street and look at all the different shops and bakeries. There are many delicious places to eat and very cool fruit markets and butcher shops. The service at these restaurants was great and most people knew English. It was a great taste of French life.

I felt very thankful to be staying in the rue Cler. It offers many advantages such as close proximity to both the Metro and bus lines as well as taxi stands. It is within walking distance to the Seine, Louvre, Eiffel Tower, and many other important historical/religious sites. In addition, the neighborhood is filled with cafes, flower shops, boulangeries, a... More

Our hotel was right next to Rue Cler. It was nice to have dining and shopping options near by. I also appreciate that the Rue Cler is not open to through traffic.

Our hotel was adjacent to Cler Rue! We enjoyed crepes every morning and evening. This pedestrian walkway is gorgeous and full of seafood and produce vendors. Be sure to try some fresh squeezed orange juice while strolling through.

If you are on rue Cler that means that you are near the Eiffel Tower. Here is where all of the inhabitents of the 7eme arrondisement do their food shopping. There is a great selection and at least 3 or 4 flower shops at good prices I found 10 casa lilllies for 25 euros and 5 on President Wilson the... More

This is the perfect street to shop for picnic accoutrements. My boyfriend and I picked up cheese, salami, baguettes & wine for a picnic on the Champs de Mars. This is a beautiful street!

We had a great time picking out goods for a picnic lunch. There is also a great place that serves up out of this world cream puffs, but unfortunately I cannot recall the name of it! If you are going for the market, the market at the Bastille is tremendous in size and comparison.

Rue Cler is the perfect place to visit for a snack (eg. crepes) or a meal before or after sightseeing at the nearby Eiffel Tower, Army Museum or Rodin Museum. You can also shop for a picnic to enjoy at the Champ de Mars. You can't go wrong with the crepes at the Creperie Ulysee en Gaule, or an expensive... More
