Video: The Perfect Market Street to Call Home in Paris

Heading to Paris? Rue Cler is the perfect, traffic-free market street to call home for a few days. I do almost every year — and it just gets better and better.

Our Paris guidebook features lots of hotels and restaurants on Rue Cler, and I’m putting together a guided walk down the street for my free Rick Steves Audio Europe app.

I shot this nine-minute blitz as a tool to help write the walk accurately when I get back to the office. While it’s pretty long, I figure some of you might enjoy a quick, ad lib tour down a small lane in a great city. This clip is your chance to take a walk down Rue Cler with me and decide if you want to call this slice of Paris home for a few days.

This is Day 56 of my “100 Days in Europe” series. As I travel with Rick Steves’ Europe Tours, research my guidebooks, and make new TV shows, I’m reporting on my experiences across Europe. Still to come: Ireland, England, Scotland, Germany, Switzerland, and more. Thanks for joining me here on my blog and via Facebook.
