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.

This area of Paris is very charming and you can feel like a local. Come here on a Sunday afternoon to hear the nice sounds of music and watch the locals prepare for the week, as they walk through the streets carrying baguettes and cheeses. Sit at a terrace at one of the many cafes and people watch. It is... More

Good for food/ restaurants, we like this street best in the evening, when it really comes alive. In winter the street lights add to the atmosphere as well.

We rented an apartment on rue Montorgueil and could have stayed there forever. If you love food then this is the place for you! It is all there! We had a small kitchen and brought things in but all the neat restaurants pulled us out when push came to shove.

I love walking around Paris, but this particular street, I hold dear to my heart. Why? There's a pastry shop in Rue Montorgueil called STOHRER (actually known as one of the oldest pastry shops in Paris). The Almond Croissant there is TO DIE FOR! It's a must try if you are around that area.

One of the most famous walking streets in Paris. Not as touristic as would you expect from it's location. It offers various small shops selling food, wine and goods. Lots of restaurants and cafés. Don't forget to check the small streets crossing it, especially toward Rue Montmartre (another famous street among locals).

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.
