Tour de France: Paris, 14ème – Meg Gagnard

{Bricks & Colors on Rue Pernety}

The great thing about Paris is that it’s a really accessible city, and usually doesn’t take me much more than 30 minutes to get just about anywhere. The fun thing too is having friends who live in different neighborhoods to get you out and about and into a change of pace. Today we travel over and down to the 14th arrodissement, which is home to Meg Gagnard, who is behind De Quelle Planète Est-tu? Even though Meg is off adventuring in NYC this summer, she takes a fun look at several Paris neighborhoods and hot spots on her blog, and I’m sure she’ll be doing more exploring this fall.

{Rue de la Tombe Issoire; Métro: Saint Jacques}

{Bouquet d’Alésia – 75 Avenue du Général Leclerc; Métro: Alésia}

{Rue du Montparnasse for TONS of crêperies and Galettes – Montparnasse is the Quartier de Bretagne; right: Brocante/Antique Shop where I get all of my plates & great finds!, Métro: Alésia)}

{Passage d’Enfer- Quaint, colorful passageway}

{Rooftops & View towards Montparnasse, Avenue du Maine}

{Marché aux Puces de Porte de Vanves. Walk from the bottom of Rue Didot until Porte de Vanves metro. It goes on longer than expected! Arrive no later than 11 or 12, the vintage stuff is there early!}

Worth Checking Out in the 14th:

  • Le Verre Siffleur- Great for dinner
  • Parc Montsouris for a picnic or a stroll
  • Bootlegger Bofiad Beer Shop (82 Rue de l’Ouest- every Belgian beer bottle you could possibly imagine… great labels!)
  • Rue Daguerre (great market street with some cute shops & especially great for anything required for an apéritif… cheese.. wine… charcuterie… )
  • To eat/drink: Les Artistes (60 rue Didot; Métro: Plaisance/Pernety)


P.S. Don’t miss Meg’s BOARDING PASS!

Thanks, Meg!
