  • In the corner of an alley, this small little-known attraction deserves a bigger celebrity! It symbolizes the soul of Paris and Montmartre. A must see!

  • This is the second time I visited this statue and was not disappointed. My daughter was with me and got a kick out of having me video her running to do a high five. We still are giggling over the vide...  more »
  • Down from the top of Montmartre, the rue Norvins arriving at rue Girardon right is this work of art. It is in the place Marcel Aymé. It's really very original and Jean Marais great actor and sculptor, made it in memory of the author of the book (the passes walls) of Marcel Aymé.

  • This sculpture is a tribute to a short story by Marcel Ayme, after whom the plaza is named. In fact his face is on the larger-than-life sculpture, by his friend Jean Marais. A civil servant in Montmartre has the incredible ability to traverse walls due to a magical pill, but in the end gets stuck after he takes the antidote by mistake. Go ahead, grab his hand and try to help him out.
  • Nice statue ; you should go there with a Parisian to explain its meaning 😉
  • A cool little art piece in Montmartre
  • interesting story
  • J'adore

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
