A place where many things happen over the course of each and every day. I stayed a few doors down in rue Yvonne which runs straight into Place Abbesses. Sunday it was a marketplace filled with Vintage, Antiques and everything you'd find at a small...More

This is my favorite part of Montmartre, a lovely square full of Parisians going about their business. Lots of good bars and cafes for a place to rest and drink. Food markets. A class Metro entrance. A little carousel.

Walked straight through this busy square and into the Jardin des Abbesses... a quiet interlude in this touristy spot

Leads to the underground subway. Leave yourself plenty of time as everyone seems to be in a hurry and know where they are headed. Not so much with me, though not speakingFrench did not hinder me any.

If you will visit Montmartre, and I highly recommend that you do, this will be the first attraction you will see when you leave the metro stop. There are many steps to just reach this point so be prepared. Once we exited the metro, we...More

Close to Sacre Coeur, this square has very picturesque surroundings and gives an impression of Parisian life. Some very trendy cafes in this 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

Hi, I didn't myself know that there were brocantes at Place des Abbesses. I am often there on Sundays and have never seen brocantes there. Maybe, you should check the tourism office of Montmartre: type montmartre-guide on... More
