Owner description: This charming and scenic square in the bohemian Montmartre district looks straight off a Hollywood set, but it offers a glimpse of authentic Parisian life. Just steps away are hip eateries, cafes and boutiques—and the Abbesses Métro stop stands right here, making the Place easily reachable for visitors.

This wall is inside of a small park, so it is closed after dark. Very nice, quiet place to visit with lots of bakeries and restaurants around. Definately recommend if you are near this area.

Not a very touristic place, but nice neighbourhood. There are a lot of shops around, as well as boulangeries and restaurants

Take this underground stop and go any way you like to explore the beautiful Montmartre. Visit the Wall of Love just next to this square.

I thought taking the Metro to this stop would somehow avoid all the steps. WRONG! :) There are a lot of steps, and when I finally made it to street level, I was at my target heart rate. LOTS of stairs. But most definitely worth it. The streets are charming. I could easily spend the rest of my life there, and never look back. So quaint, so what I thought Paris would be. I love this place.

How can it be Paris without all this romantic drama wall... "Je t'aime" in all the languages. Find your lover and take him/her there then go have mussels meal in one of the nearby restaurants.
