6 France's most iconic streets in Paris
Each street itself creates irresistible uniqueness over time that attracts numerous tourists. Following are the 6 most dreamlike streets in Paris.
This is a bustling street in Paris with a lot of coffee shops, shops and markets. There is nothing more romantic than sitting at the corner of familiar coffee shop, simply watching people crossing and feeling time going by. Paris is close and friendly in that way which causes millions of hearts to shake.
This is considered the most "romantic" street in Paris, not only because it is located on the "hill of love" Montmatre but it is outstandingly beautiful during the Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter.
There are not many restaurants here, thus it is somehow quiet compared to the surrounding streets, which makes the irresistible charm of L'abreuvoir. The street is surrounded by green grass and ancient brick walls. Just stand there and take your selfie stick and cell phone out, you can capture the poetic scenes into your phone.
RUE DES ROSIERS STREET
In the heart of the Marais, the Jewish area, lies the bustling rue des Rosiers. The faint smell of falafel tempts passers-by into Middle-Eastern eateries and the trendy window displays lure shoppers into vintage shops and concept stores. Stop off at l’As du Falafel for your falafel fix, Sacha Finkelsztajn for sweet pastries and spiced breads and Sabon for beauty products.
RUE SAINT DOMINIQUE STREET
Rue Saint Dominique is bursting with French clichés: bakeries selling baguettes by the dozen, pastry shops with delicately placed creations in the window and beautiful views of the Eiffel Tower in the not-so-far distance. This traditionally Parisian street is also home to an array of restaurants serving classic French food, among them Café Constant and Les Cocottes.
RUE DES MARTYRS STREET
Located in the trendy So-Pi area, rue des Martyrs is teeming with speciality coffee shops, health-conscious eateries and trendy hang-outs. Trinité church lies at the bottom of the road and Sacré Cœur can be seen from the top. Grab a coffee on the sun-drenched terrace at KB Coffee Shop, a multi-coloured salad at Rose Bakery and some salted caramels from Sebastien Gaudard.
RUE CRÉMIEUX STREET
Pastel-hued buildings with colourful shutters, adorned with pretty plant pots line the charming Rue Crémieux. Tucked away in the peaceful 12th district, there’s little to do along this pedestriansied road other than admire the colourful houses and quirky nature of the cobbled passageway.
