I loved this neighborhood with all his "boutiques gourmandes", ranging from cheese to wine to pastry. If you are a foodie like me, do not miss out on this place. When you are here, also visit Rue Montmartre which has a lot of specialty kitchen ware stores (A. Simon, La Bovida. etc) and a bookstore dedicated to culinary books (Librarie... More

Rue Montorgueil is definitely worth strolling, just for the cakes alone. This is a typically french street although in recent years heavily caters for the tourist. off Rue Montorgueil you will find Japanese and Thai restaurants, most of which are quite good, and heavily crowded at lunch and dinner time, so come early. Make sure you don't eat before you... More

I have been to Paris several times but it was only on my most recent trip that I discovered Rue Montorgueil. This popular street is filled with speciality shops, cafes and restaurants. You can walk the length of the markets in about 5 minutes but it is fun to walk slowly and look at all the produce. It is worth... More

A very lively street with cafes and shops. We went in the early evening and it was hopping even on a cold November night. Definitely worth seeking this place out for the experience.

A relatively narrow street, decorated for the season. Shops and restaurants on both sides of the road which is closed to traffic and pedestrians are safe to walk around

On our second trip to Paris, I can now say that Rue Montorgueil extending to petite Carreaux. We are lucky enough to have discovered this place, which is not packed with tourists. Our top picks would have to be Made in Italy for Italian food, fast. We also love L'escargot for the pricier meals that are worth the money. On... More

We are staying in an apartment just off Rue Montorgueil and are loving the access to all the great markets and restaurants. This is an historic last vestige of the Les Halles markets, worth a stroll and worth a bite.

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
