Really glad to stop and look around the different areas of this great city. We are happy to see these more quiet places. Plenty of small shops to look in, if time permits try some of the side streets away from the big tourist places

One of the best neighborhoods in Paris for cafe sitting and enjoying the liveliness of the city. Great because it's pedestrian only, so away from the noise and the pollution of the traffic. It's what's left of the old food markets in the center, so...More

This was a quaint restaurant and my wife and I were seated outside which was very pleasant. Had beautiful escargot, "frogs legs" and a cheese board with a nice Pinot Noir to wash it all done. Waiter's recommendations were excellent. Highly recommended!

Rue Montorgueil is the kind of street lined with cafes, bakeries, florists, and cheese and meat markets that one sees in movies set in Paris, on travel shows, etc. Spending an hour or several strolling this street, window shopping and going into the various shops,...More

Questions & Answers

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
