A meet with the Mayor of Montmartre

This episode of the podcast is a chat with the Mayor of the 18th arrondissement, Eric Lejoindre.

I met him in his office at the Town Hall, a stunning building on the north side of the district. Check out my Instagram stories for a closer look inside the secret wine cellar.

The mayor shared his tips for Montmartre, explained why its wrong to say parts of the 18th are “no-go zones”, and talked about how tourists and locals mingle in the village of Paris.

Oh yes, and if you want to go exploring, the streets he mentioned were Avenue Junot and Rue Myrah.

Thanks to the Town Hall for having me – that’s it pictured below.

Update: in July 2020, Eric joined the show again for a live stroll down the charming rue des Abbesses. Have a look at the Walk Show posted below to be transported to Montmartre.
