My family came to visit Paris, which meant aged parents and a toddler were in the group. This train tour was an excellent way to see the district without having to climb steep stairs or do lots of walking. The whole tour takes about 35 minutes. You can either get on the train at the bottom of the hill by... More

if you want to see the old Paris, this is a must. The little train leaves at Moulone Rouge and travels up to the top of Paris via cobbled streets. The view at the top is amazing and it stops for a short while giving you time to take in the view or walk around the artists market

The best 5 euro of the holiday and the most fun way to see the sights. We got on outside the Sacre Coeur and marvelled at how he gets the little train round some of the streets. Perfect way to let your legs rest for half an hour in the middle of the afternoon.

This is a fun 40 minute tour of the neighborhood. For a few euros you can rest your legs and see the sights, many of which were in the movie Amelie.

Went July 2012 and I thought it was worthwhile. I would pick up the train at Metro Pigalle so that it will take you up the hill. If you have kids this is great and if you want to avoid taking the steps up to Sacre Coeur, this is even better. For only 6 Euros you get to get on... More

Please readers, do not take the "Little Train" experience seriously! You've only spent six Euros, and you think you'll get a serious overview of Montmartre in 30 minutes? Puleeze! I would advise walking leisurely through, up, and, down Monmartre for a half day first to get a true feel for the place. THEN--and only then, take the "Little Train" for... More

Cheap, fun and goes right to the church and past the small vineyard at the convent that sells the most expensive wine in the world! We were here in June 2008.

We went in February and had a whole booth to ourselves. (It won't be like that come spring.) Our driver spoke a little English and we had no problems as reviewed by previous TP posters. We paid by credit card and had a great tour of Montmartre (my kids are under 7). Adults are 6 E return, but you can... More

When we attempted to take the Petit Train Montmartre on our first evening in Paris yesterday, it didn't come, despite us waiting 50 minutes at the departure spot across from the Moulin Rouge.We had seen it earlier in the day, and thought it would be a great way to pack in a little sightseeing. this evening, we returned again, and...

I didn't check reviews on this tour prior to going. They might have stopped me from spending my money on it. I didnt have any sort of expectations on the tour, just that I thought it was a cute way to see the city from a route I probably never would have walked. And I was glad that I did.... More

Staying in Montmartre

Neighborhood Profile
Montmartre
Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colors, and styles which changes from one street to another. Ride the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy features shops not intended for young audiences, while residences are scattered to the north and east. The diverse population includes a large part from the Arab-speaking world, Africa, and Turkey. It’s a corner of Paris full of life and dynamism with charms that can’t be found anywhere else.
