Situated between Place de la Bastille and rue de Lappe.
Lively street featuring a number of trendy cafes and restaurants starting on the broad and historic Place de la Bastille where you can find the new Opera considered as one of the best in the world, inaugurated for the 200th anniversary of the French Revolution. Also in a short walking distance is the singular royal Place des Vosges, Paris' oldest and arguably most beautiful square having been the place of residence of many historic personalities. Built by Henri IV its perfect symmetry and verticality are fine examples of classical French architecture. There are many precious museums, arts galleries, antique shops, choice restaurants, cafes, and other convenience shops in the neighborhood.

It is ideal for a couple.

The [Paris] apartment was fine, comfortable and livable. We have no complaints. The photos on the original advertisement corresponded favorably with reality "on site." There were a few added nice things that we found out after getting there: most notably the Gardien (as the concierge was called). [He] was always pleasant and very helpful with a couple of problems: electricity, keys, general advice, etc. He kept the halls and stairways impeccably clean. The street was very convenient, within walking distance of bakery, post office, restaurants, stores and markets. The bus lines were very convenient.
