  • Pretty place less touristy than above dutertre and with full of shops, bars and bistros of any level. Although pleasant as the street of the Martyrs.

  • Wall of means ' I love you ' in (I think) all languages of the world certainly is unique and a cool place for a commemorative photo of the second half.

  • Beautiful square where comes the subway stop of reference to Montmartre. His specialties are the sign of the Art Nouveau metro, one of the last of Paris, and a wall with the inscription ti amo in tutte le lingue del mondo (will they?). Drop by if you take a walk in the neighborhood!

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.
