I would never have known about those stairs, that bench with a view on Montmartre if it hadn't been for Vernon Subutex. Don't rush there in your thousands though,I guess the residents would not appreciate. As it can only be accessed by one twisting streets...More
We went for the journées des portes ouvertes and we're treated to a tasting of the wines produced there by the city of Paris. A unique place to visit but rarely open. The whole neighborhood above the park is also interesting to visit

Belleville / Pere Lachaise
At the eastern edge of Paris lies Belleville / Père Lachaise, an understated wonderland of local treasures. Alongside the world-famous cemetery, family-owned delicatessens and cafés nestle between local stores and establishments. The richness of the population here has created a little Chinatown of Asian restaurants, and the area comes to life at night by a funky underground scene. Façades change from one
street to another as one passes from white walled provincial homes to tall blocks and reconverted homes. The whole area is an inspirational mix of people from all corners of the world frequented by artists, students, immigrants, and Parisian families. Once home to supporters of the Paris commune, its rebellious nature is now offset by its rural charms.
