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

We visited 4 thrift stores in the neighborhood yesterday in search of a wool coat and found Chinemachine at 100 Rue des Martyrs (open noon-8pm) to be the best organized and most pleasant experience of the four. The other 3 were either filled with piles...More

Lots of stairs at this stop but with it being one of the last metro stations with a stain glass overhang, it’s well worth the trip. Just off this station is the wall of love located in the garden!!

Take the metro to the abbesses stop and walk up all those stairs to the top. Once on top, catch your breath and check out the wall of love. 250 translations of l love you on blue tiles.

This Metro station in Paris is the one buried deep in the ground--or rather, there is the hill of Montemartre above it. Therefore, the stairs present a huge challenge even to those who are fit. An elevator or two offer the alternative, but it is...More

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
