Located in the 18th Arrondissement, this elevated rural neighborhood on the outskirts of the city has a collection of upscale shops and cafés and still exudes hints of old village charm.

We took the local train to Montmartre. The transport system is really easy to understand in Paris. When you arrive you can catch a local bus right where you come up from underground which takes you all over Montmartre for just two euros. Much cheaper than a tour. It goes right to the top and you can get on and... More

Montmartre is still there for you. Lots of odd places and houses for you to discover. And people. Not only Tourists. They mostly hang out around the Sacre Qouer.

Great area for artists. If you want a professional portrait done or are looking for local art work this is the place. Nice small neighborhood to wander around and just spend some time enjoying the local art.

I loved this area. Strolling through the art market was very fun and I have some amazing art now hanging on my walls. Definitely haggle - we got great deals buying all our art together (3 of us) instead of individually. The whole area is well worth the visit! You won't be disappointed!

The Place du Tetre is a bit clichéd, but clichés exist for a reason. There's just no better way to feel like you need a beret on your head, a baguette under your arm then to stroll through the stone streets of Montmarte, up and down staircases, gazing on flower boxes and quaint vistas in every direction. It's one of... More

We've walked up the steps in the winter (a little slippery!), the spring and the summer. And in any season, walking to the top of the hill at Sacre Coeur is well worth an afternoon's investment. It's a beautiful area, filled with creperie, museums, little restaurants. Plenty of opportunity to people viewing. Loved the Dali museum. And the views?? Spectacular.

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.
