This charming and scenic square in the bohemian Montmartre district looks straight off a Hollywood set, but it offers a glimpse of authentic Parisian life. Just steps away are hip eateries, cafes and boutiques—and the Abbesses Métro stop stands right here, making the Place easily reachable for visitors.

Place du Abbesses Is the best Metro Stop for Montmartre, but be sure to take the elevator or you will have to walk up a steep flight of stairs.

This square and the surrounding area are the heart of the Montmartre village and could not be more charming. Lots and lots of cafes. Street markets. Ethnic restaurants. I love to spend time here.

If you're in Montmartre for any length of time at all then you'll eventually pass this little square. When you do, just stop and look at the only Metro station with a completely surviving art nouveau canopy, lights and signs. Then think what it must...More

Abbesses metro still has the full canopy, lights and signs of the art nouveau period - great to photograph. Close by is a small park, busy with locals and tourist alike. A place to wander around before the impact of the crowded Sacre Coeur area.

Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colours, and
styles which changes from one street to another. Ride
the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the
steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the
Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The
church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano
bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers
thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy
