If ever there was a single road that could transport one out of the Haussmannian designed world of Paris architecture, and into a completely different sphere, then it would certainly be Rue Crémieux.
Located in the 12th arrondissement, a stone throw away from Gare de Lyon, Rue Crémieux possesses a charm unprecedented within the city. The road is magnificent. Lined with beautifully coloured and decorated terrace houses, the rainbow-like facades could easily have been taken directly from Notting Hill’s very own Portobello Road and placed right bang in the middle of the French capital.
As I was taking in the sheer variety of the houses, a sweet couple pointed out a signage to me, which marked the height in which a flood in 1910 reached – rising to around 6 feet tall.
Rue Crémieux offers a delightful break from the hustle and bustle of Paris. Here you can wander at your own leisure, thanks to the road being pedestrian only, so you don’t have to worry about being run over when taking photos!
I never knew this street existed, and I used to live in Paris! Love the vibrant colours that you have captured perfectly

Gorgeous pictures. I can’t believe I still haven’t been. I keep postponing but I’ll definitely try to get there before leaving for summer holidays.
Thank you so much! It’s only a short walk from Gard de Lyon, so I definitely recommend it. Especially in this beautiful summer weather we’re having! 🙂
