Rue Lepic, Paris

Neighborhood · Hidden Gem · Other
An ancient road, Rue Lepic, climbs the hill of Montmartre from Boulevard de Clichy to Place Jean-Baptiste-Clément. It's had several names over the years, gaining its current one in 1864 in honor of Gen. Louis Lepic. This is also a street filled with history. Painter Vincent Van Gogh lived here (No. 54) from 1886 to 1888. Car manufacturer Louis Renault won a bet here in 1898--that his invention was capable of climbing up the slope of the road. (It did, and he received 12 orders for the car on the spot). Also, the 2001 film "Amélie" starring Audrey Tatou (the highest-grossing French subtitled film ever released in the United States) was filmed at the brasserie Café des 2 Moulins at No. 15.
