Metro Abbesses is one of the few remaining Art Nouveau entrances and the gateway to the village of Montmartre. It is less than 5 minutes from the apartment and one of two metros you will use. It is also one of the deepest metros, so you'll be happy to take the elevator up and down to the trains.
Who can resist the fresh fruits and vegetables. Rue des Abbesses and Rue Lepic have many green grocers to choose from, all with delicious fresh fruits and vegetables.
