When they saw that we were coming to Paris from one of our tweets, they invited us to their house for coffee and a tour of their amazing neighbourhood Montmartre. Who better to take us through the most charming area of Paris and the home to La Basilique Sacre Couer than the author of Paris Movie Walks himself !
