We rented an apartment for just over a week in Montmartre, and it's now our favorite area in Paris! We loved the hilly terrain and many trees, the beautiful turn-of-the-century architecture, great restaurants and friendly locals. We truly felt like we were Parisians and not just tourists. With so many Metro stations in the area, we just hopped on to... More

The steps of Montmarte give you a great view of Paris. The only thing I'd recommend is not making eye contact with the people trying to sell things. There is also a well know scam when a man tries to trap your wrist in string and make you pay for the bracelet, claiming it's "for the church". Just don't give... More

I lived in Paris for a time back in the 1970's and went back again some years later, only to find that this city still owns my heart! Paris, especially Montmartre, is one of the most wonderful parts of Paris. The day time offers wonderful shops and small boutique style restaurants, while in the square, the artists are painting until... More

So different from Paris as it's set on a hillside. The streets are winding and hilly, which is a stark contrast to flat Paris. There is a lively buzz, bordering on crowded during the days. But the ambiance in the evening is much more relaxed. Plenty of cafés situated by staircases that offer nice views of the city. Be prepared... More

And nice views with a wonderful free cathedral to view at the top. Lots of places to buy art or have your portrait done, by a local sketch artist. If you a shopping for higher quality art work this is not your place. The canvas pieces here are drivin by and for the tourist/souvenir market . All in all worth... More

It is a little bit of a hike (even from the Metro), but I really enjoyed this area. Quirky shops, great views of the city, interesting streets with steep steps, etc. Buy some wine while in the area!

The area between the Metro and the start of the hill is something of a tourist trap. While you can catch a lift up to the top of the hill don't be slack just walk and you will save some money, burn some calories and ensure you don't have to stand around waiting in line. You can visit Basilica of... More

Lots to see here, taking the Montmartre train a must! Fun to watch the artists at work, have coffee in a cafe, see Sacred Coeur, ride the Funicular and shop for souvenirs and bargains in the lower streets.
