One delicious day in Paris was spent on the Rue Cler.Rick Steve’s sums it up best about Rue Cler: Traffic-free since 1984— Rue Cler offers plenty of space for tiny stores and their patrons to spill into the street. It’s an ideal environment for this ritual to survive and for you to explore. The street is lined with the essential shops — wine, cheese, chocolate, bread.
Our walk through the Rue Cler reminded me of what Paris might have been like in the early 1900’s; the cobblestone streets, the smell of fresh flowers, the cheese shop, the fish market; it was a carnival of fine, simple foods!
