ruedescignesUne petite promenande in the Butte-aux-Cailles district, this quaint corner of Paris built around 1925, is hard to find but worth the effort. The beautiful street names match the charm of the village:  Rue des Glycines (wisteria), rue des Orchidées, rue des Iris, rue des Liserons, rue des Volubilis.


Cross the Parc Montsouris and exit on the east side. Take rue Liard, then rue Auguste Lancon. After about 200m, take rue des Glycines on your right. Aaah, inhale, tiptoe down the cobbled streets, you’re suddenly in the French countryside. But please, don’t disturb the residents. With a bit of luck, one of the local residents’ cats will walk alongside you before going back to chase the butterflies.
