Most interesting place
Butte Montmartre – a district full of authentic, Parisian charm. It’s often used as a backdrop in films and it’s particularly attractive and mysterious at night.
There are more than 1,200 cheeses in France and so, it’s very difficult for a Frenchman to choose only one… the most well-known is Camembert and this is typically paired with a baguette and an excellent glass of red wine!
