How to Visit Rue Cremieux, Paris’ Most Instagram-Worthy Road: 4 Must-Know Tipes

Have you ever seen a street filled with brightly colored houses in Paris on Instagram? Chances are, you’ve seen Rue Cremieux. Rue Cremieux is easily one of the best spots in Paris to “get it for the ‘gram.” Still a somewhat lesser-known spot compared to the iconic Eiffel Tower or Arc de Triomphe, it’s soon to be the talk of the town. Here’s what you need to know before going:

1. Be respecful of residents

First and foremost, be respectful and quiet. Rue Cremieux is both a residential and commercial road, so there are people trying to live or work their 9 to 5 jobs in the brightly colored buildings!

Make sure to stay aware of your surroundings for people trying to get in or out of the houses. Try to keep your noise level to a minimum, as walls in Paris are notoriously thin.

If you don’t want yelling outside of your apartment, they probably don’t either!

2. Rue Cremieux Location: The 12th Arrondissment

Rue Cremieux isn’t necessarily in the most difficult location to get to, it’s just a little tucked away in the 12th Arrondissement! The colorful street is a hop and skip away from Place de la Bastille and Gare de Lyon.

It is a small, narrow road, so my friends and I almost walked right past it when trying to get there.

3. Wear neutral colors

While I love contrasting colors as much as anyone, there’s SO many colors on Rue Cremieux that it would be difficult to find a color to wear that matched the road better than a neutral color such as black or white.

I personally opted for white to be sure that my dress popped against the bright colors. The white dress I’m wearing in these photos is a favorite of mine for all the ruffles! Click here to shop it.

4. You don’t need to wake up early to get Rue Cremieux empty

While getting to a location early is usually a must to get it alone, I don’t think that arriving at the crack of dawn is necessary for Rue Cremieux.

My friends and I arrived around 2pm, and had the road to ourselves. We were joined by only a few other groups of people twenty or so minutes later. Rue Cremieux isn’t the most well known location in Paris yet, so it doesn’t have the same buzz that Trocadéro or the Louvre does.

Keep in mind that we were there during Paris Fashion Week, the very first couple days of March. During peak tourist season in the spring and summer, the road may be busier. Again, if you do elect to go early in the morning, please be mindful that many residents may still be sleeping.

    Love these photos! I was just reading an article about Rue Cremieux and how everyone needs to be respectful because they are thinking of putting gates on the streets that will be closed on weekends.
