Forget the Champs-Élysées – to get your shopping fix, look no further than Rue des Abbesses. This pretty Parisian street is filled with boutiques, offering everything from shabby-chic to haute couture. The Brocante des Abbesses is worth a visit, you’ll find everything from Art Deco ornaments to delicious hot chocolate at this Sunday street market.

Rue des Martyrs is the hub of South Pigalle’s burgeoning foodie scene, with a great selection of delicatessens, as well as casual and formal dining spots. There’s still something of a village feel here – chain stores are forbidden from setting up shop in the street, and artisanal local businesses have flourished in their absence.

Taking pride of place on the butte Montmartre, the Sacré-Cœur Basilica is (quite literally) one of Paris’ highlights, providing a spectacular vista of the city. The interior of the basilica is equally stunning, with golden mosaics and murals lining the walls.
