This week’s Walk Show was along Rue Montorgueil, my absolute favourite street in Paris.
Fishmongers, cheesemongers, flowermongers, and more cafes and restaurants than you could probably visit in a month. The street is best enjoyed with a croissant from Stohrer, the oldest bakery in Paris. Monet himself liked this street so much he painted it in 1878.
Anyway, Monet is long dead, so instead I visited the street with the friendliest tour guide in the city, April Pett. We checked out bakery mentioned above, the famed Rocher de Cancale restaurant, a massive asparagus, a nearby covered passage (and much more).
Now, only members of The Earful Tower can watch the full 30-minute walk show, a membership that costs 10 USD a month.
But here’s the one-minute version for those who haven’t signed up yet and who fancy a little taste of central Paris.
As for April, she’s a highly sought after guide in Paris and for good reason. Her tours are excellent and her gourmet tour even covers the Montorgueil area.
If you want more from her, listen to her last appearance on The Earful naming the top street in every arrondissement.
Meanwhile, here’s the link once again to watch the full Walk Show. Become an Earful Tower member for 10 USD a month to watch it, and to see similar live Walk Shows every week.
One thought on “Rue Montorgueil: The best Paris street (with a top tour guide)”
One of my long-time favorites, as well.
