10am: Arrive at the Place des Abbesses
In Square Jehan-Rictus just behind the metro lives the mushy ‘I Love You’ wall, featuring declarations of love in over 250 languages. Sure, it's selfie-stick terriority but it's worth a glance.
Next, make your way down the Rue Yvonne le Tac. Here you’ll find yourself in front of charming bookshop the Librairie des Abbesses – push the door open and spend some time browsing the packed shelves. Perhaps even pick up a book or two. Then continue straight ahead, crossing the Rue des Martyrs.
