With its cobbled streets, stunning Basilica, artists, and bistros ... Montmartre is full of charm! Perched on the top of a small hill in the 18th arrondissement, the most famous Parisian district has lost none of its village atmosphere that appealed so much to the artists of the 19th and 20th centuries. A real melting pot of art and inspiration for the cinema, Montmartre still gives as much pleasure to those who stroll around it and figures high on the list for a stay in Paris.

🇫🇷 Bienvenue Rue de l'Abreuvoir. Montmartre, Paris (18ème arrondissement).

🇫🇷 Make sure on your next visit to Paris to visit rue de l’Abreuvoir, one of the oldest and most historic streets in Paris in Montmartre (In 1843, it was called "Chemin de l'Abreuvoir" because of the path that led to the old Montmartre watering hole located at the corner of rue Girardon) … Here are my favorite landmarks:

🇫🇷 On one end of this cobbled street, you’ll discover the iconic Instagram-famous ‘La Maison Rose’ (2 rue de l'abreuvoir), while on the other end, you’ll soon find yourself at Place Dalida (famous singer-songwriter who rests in Montmartre Cemetery). Check her songs; she was a Diva!

🇫🇷 If you loved Emily in Paris…

This is where Emily decides to set up a marketing campaign for Hästens beds, and it’s also where Maison Rose, the charming restaurant where Emily and Mindy have dinner in the fifth episode, is located. Opened in 1908 by Germaine Pichot, Maison Rose once played host to many famous people, including Pablo Picasso, Edith Piaf, and Albert Camus.

Mindy calls Rue de l’Abreuvoir ‘the prettiest street in Paris’ and explains to Emily that it is also called la rue qui va au bout, i.e. the road that leads to the end. While neither of those things is officially true, Rue de l’Abreuvoir is one of Montmartre's quaintest streets!
