This is a local spot with the deepest metro station in Paris. While ascending you can feel Montmatre vibes but not feeling forced or touristy. In December there is a small christmas market which enhances your experience.

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.

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.
