Rue des Thermopyles (metro Pernety)is a quiet and pedestrian street, no car, only bicycles parked, green plants and herbs. A hidden gem!

To access it, you should
take the rue
de Hesse, or Harquebusiers, then cross the
small porch in front
of you and you will discover the smallest square
of the 3rd districts beautifully decorated with climbing
roses; So romantic!
My recommendation: on your way buy a sandwich made with french
baguette and enjoy a peaceful lunch on the grass
Square St Gilles-Saint-Veneur
Rue des Arquebusiers
Left end of the street
Metro: Chemin Vert ou St Sébastien Froissart
Also known as the Villa des Fusains, the Cité des Fusains is 22 rue de Tourlaque and is a beautiful building composed of apartments and houses with a garden.
