MONTMARTRE STREET ART

I found my favorite area of Paris – Montmartre – I went to this area before but to the “tourist” part never to all the side streets – this area feels like your in this vintage part of Paris mixed with so much modern day culture. When we talk about a place that you can feel and see art – this place is Montmartre. It has a spirit that is so true and if you crave to be around creatives this is the place. It makes sense that some of the most famous artists lived here and worked here.

Today there seems to be organized artist communes as well as the square where you can purchase art from so many amazing artists but if you walk up and down the streets you see something tres cool – street art ! Street artists from around the world come and place their art throughout the streets.

One of my favorite places on the trip I went to was this bakery shop boulangerie – this is amazing ! 

3. Les Petits Mitrons bakery
Les Petits Mitrons bakery
26, rue Lepic. Easy to miss among the bustling shops of rue Lepic in Montmartre, this bakery proposes good viennoiseries (pain au chocolat, croissants, pain aux raisins, chaussons aux pommes, etc), good bread, and tarts galore, all invitingly displayed in the bakery window. The fondants au chocolat (rich chocolate cake with a liquid center) are divine and of several varieties here: pure dark chocolate, chocolate with walnuts, and chocolate with pears. Not to mention the variety of savory tarts. Mmm! from http://www.walkgeneration.com/Paris/ViewWalk
