Questions & Answers
Ask a question
I will be traveling in November with my Mom who I will be pushing in a fold-up wheelchair (12” rear wheels). We arrive on a Wednesday around 2pm on the Eurostar and are considering going to Rue Montorgueil to walk around and get lunch. We are then heading to the Louvre. Is there another similar location that might work better on the way to the Louvre for a wheelchair? She is able to get out and walk short distances and up/down a few steps. Will the walking route from Rue Montorgueil to Louvre work for a wheelchair (ex: not hilly)? How successful might we be at hailing a taxi from the market area? I don’t see any good backup bus routes. The rest of our plan is Louvre to Champs Elysees area hotel (taxi or bus 72 to 73). Next day: taxi or Bus 73 to 62 Notre Dame, Then taxi or Bus 27 to 72 to Eiffel Tower, noon lunch at Restaurant 58 (Mom’s request) then Bateaux Parisians Seine cruise. Bus 42 back to Gare du Nord for Eurostar return trip @ 7:15pm. Does this all seem reasonable pushing a wheelchair in November? Are there better bus routes that I'm not finding? Should we just plan on all buses with the transfers or will we have a chance at finding a Taxi? Thank you.

We've had success in renting from Home Away. I highly recommend the area around Rue Montorgueil, which is in the Second Arrondissement for foodies. Better central location and less expensive than St. Germain.

The bookstore is at 92-96 Rue Montmartre and is called Librarie Gourmande. Wonderful place. As for bakery items, suggest that if the large department stores aren't enough, they do have quite a range of speciality stores... More

Patisserie on Rue Montorgueil (10 Replies)
My daughter and I plan to spend some time browsing Rue Montorgueil on our upcoming trip to Paris at the end of this month. Does anyone know the name of the Patisserie which sells the little pink pig treats? My daughter is in hot pursuit of them! Also, any other suggestions when browsing this street? Thanks in advance!

I'm not sure what the little pink pig treats are, but is it Stohrer? That is the famous and long standing (.perhaps oldest?) patisserie in Paris.

Rue Montorgueil (12 Replies)
I am a woman--senior citizen--who will be traveling alone and staying in an apartment on Rue Montorgueil in July. I have never been on a subway and don't know if I have the nerve to try it in Paris. I am, however, an avid walker. Are the main tourist attractions within a reasonable walking distance of Rue Montorgueil, with a safe way for a pedestrian to get from point to point? I definitely want to see the Louvre, Notre Dame, and the Eiffel Tower.

Paris in general is a good walking city. You will enjoy Rue Montorguel. Lots of cafes, restaurants, and a nice market street. It is an easy walking distance to the Louvre and Notre Dame. Walking to the Eiffel Tower is doable. Consider taking one of the hop on hop off buses to familiarize yourself with the location of everything. You can pick up at the Louvre. You can go to the Louvre in the AM and then pick up the hop on hop off. If you buy a 24 hr. it is good from the time you first get on...More
