What is a Relaxation breaks on the Butte-Montmartre ?

These “Relaxation Breaks” take the form of a Coffee Break, Restaurant Break, Shopping Break, in short, anything that might interest you and what you need during a walk can become a Break. This allows you to rest, taste or buy at recommended points noted with the quasi certainty of quality, without being swindled by an indelicate trader (without making you). You are also on vacation and enjoy your time simply by mingling with Parisians around the corner.

The rating of shops

The shops are rated from 1 to 5 and we have eliminated from our lists the shops rated below 4.0 (with a few exceptions of 3.2 or 3.5, to show you the shops to avoid in particular). The merchants are rated by the tourists who preceded you on this route.

The merchants selected in the end represent less than 50% of the merchants present along the promenades. This means that following the indications of our lists allows you to avoid poor quality or service, the “tourist traps” that are regularly encountered in tourist places such as the Butte Montmartre.
