The area has numerous street painters, restaurants and museums, and just strolling Montmartre is an attraction in itself.
We started at Place des Abbesses, where the je t’aime wall has the words “I love you” written in 311 languages, there’s a carousel and a little playground and from there we walked up and up and up….
A new playdate! Get inspired!
