A haven of peace in the big city - this is Rue Cler…

Out of the hustle and bustle away from the touristy areas of Paris, you will find many small forgotten places, only known and cherished by locals. Often tourists get trapped in the main stream of things to see and visit, so take a moment and dive into a street less visited for plenty of rewards… But as Paris offers tonnes of monuments, gorgeous buildings and historical areas, it also nests thousands of hidden treasures that people living there keep almost secret. So step to the other side of the mirror, and come to discover one of these hidden jewels from the capital city - Rue Cler. Rue Cler is situated within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower, in the 7th arrondissement, on the left bank of the River Seine. It is a classical Parisian street, and very famous for its delicatessens, bakeries, food and chocolate shops and markets. So if you feel like you could take a small break and treat yourself to some local cheese or wine, this is the place you want to be! The street has kept its antique charm with its characterful buildings and cobblestone paving and is entirely pedestrian. All the shops have displays and stalls overflowing on the pavement, and flowers give the whole street a colourful ambience. The list of the fabulous shops you will encounter during your visit stretches as long as your arm, but some names such as Lenôtre (caterer and gourmet food to take away), La Fermette (family owned cheese shop) and Davoli (ham in all its variations) are guaranteed to entice you to come and taste Rue Cler’s French regional food offerings and delicatessens.
