Like the Champs Elysees is probably Paris' widest boulevard, the Rue du Chat qui Pêche (Street Of The Fishing Chat) is the narrowest 'equivalent'. Located on the Quartier Latin, between the Quai Saint-Michel and the Rue de la Huchette. Apart from the fact that the...More

Its a small alley in the Latin quarter that you cross in few seconds leading to a commercial/touristic area packed with Greek restaurants. Its fun and interesting to know that its the smallest street in Paris and the name meaning is fun which means the...More

It's a cute little alley way and when you walk down it you find the Latin Quarters. There is lots of shopping and food. A must to visit!

One of those curiosities you can keep an eye out for. We had our kids look for the smallest house and the smallest street to keep them occupied.

This is the narrowest street in Paris. It is located walking distance from Notre Dame, just across the river. There is nothing extraordinary as such about Rue du Chat qui pêche. However, I have to admit that those who like quirky/unusual sites will enjoy it. I...More

This is supposedly the narrowest alley in Paris. The French name translates to "street of the fishing cat". Nothing special as such, and it stank a little of urine. To be truthful, I have seen far more romantic and narrower alleys in my home city...More

I came on this little alleyway back in the early '70s and was struck by its sweet name: The Street of the Cat Who Fishes. Here, almost 50 years later, I see that it has gathered a bit of artwork but lost none of its...More

Though this extremely narrow (about 6-feet wide) passageway holds the name of a street, it looks more like an alley to me. It is referred to as the narrowest street in Paris, but there is nothing along its 160-foot length, which runs between Quai St-Michel...More

Come and stroll along a historic Parisian street - narrow and one of the few remaining. This street reflects the historic Paris in the historic 5th Arrondissement.
