Rue Crémieux in Paris

Paris isn't nearly as colorful as Berlin or London, but we do have our own Notting Hill-like street! La Rue Crémieux is one of the most Instagrammed streets in Paris and it was fun to see it in person in stead of on millions of Instagram shots. It's actually a very very regular and small street near Bastille. But with lots of potted plants and flowers, color and quirky details. Have a look:

As you can see, la Rue Crémieux was empty when I visited, but I've been told it's usually the place to be for fashionbloggers and selfie-stick tourists… There's also a small hostel-like hotel on Number Fifteen, called L'Hôtel Particulier, with double rooms starting at 80€.

  1. Well.
    I am pretty annoyed now. My so called Paris guide did not include this sight.
    *missed photo opportunity*

    Thank you for sharing this magnificent gem of a street! Great photos on what seemed like a great day!

  2. Such a beautiful street! I wonder if the residents got together and agreed to paint their houses like that or it just happened one after the other? Lovely photos Judith. I hope that you're enjoying summer. xx M

    1. I asked myself the same question, Mel! There was not a single person around when I visited and I couldn't find any history about it online… I like to think that it grew organically and that they inspired each other. Thank you Mel! xx
