Rue Mouffetard and the surrounding area

Explore one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Paris! From the Best Western Paris Italie, take Avenue des Gobelins, where you can visit the famous Gobelins Manufactory, and then turn on to Rue Mouffetard, which is located between the Luxembourg Gardens and Jardin des Plantes, running below the Panthéon. Suffice it to say, there are many tourist sites along the way between the Latin Quarter and the banks of the Seine River:

  • Rue Mouffetard: It is one of the oldest streets in Paris that has still kept its village quality. It is dotted with numerous restaurants, cafés, boutiques and, above all, small eateries and food stands. Every morning, (except on Mondays), Parisians head to one of the most well-known markets in the capital, located at the metro stops Place Monge and Censier-Daubenton.
  • Place de la Contrescarpe : with its café terraces and lively atmosphere, it is one of the friendliest places in Paris!
  • The Panthéon : a Parisian monument dedicated to the great men and women of France is a must-see. 
  • Jardin des Plantes : here you can wander around one of the many botanical gardens, step inside the Ménagerie or the Grandes Serres…
  • National Natural History Museum
  • The Gobelins Manufactory : exhibitions and tours are organised throughout the year in this renowned tapestry factory.
