Half market, half foodie paradise shopping street, the pedestrianized Rue Montorgueil heaves with flower vendors, rotisseries, tempting bakers and fragrant cheese shops. As you browse your way down, you might stop in for a hot chocolate at Charles Chocolatier, a pastry at Stohrer (the oldest pastry shop in Paris, with a beautiful ceiling inside), some strawberries from the fruit and veg stalls, shellfish from the fishmonger, and artisanal cider from a booze shop. Good thing there are plenty of tempting cafés strung along the length of the street, for regular pit stops.
