We started at Blanche station and walked up. It is such a beautiful neighbourhood until you get to the Disneyland of sacre cour. That said, I've been there with less crowds. I think you just expect the worse and appreciate it for the beautiful place it is.

Well worth the climb up the steep streets and final sets of steps. The church is up there with the best in Paris, and the views from the front are breathtaking over a large portion of Paris.

Just behind Sacre Coeur cathedral, there is his amazing place. Fill with lots of artists & painters very gifted. All around cafés that will help have a nice drink while enjoying your time. I would really recommend having a drink & a portrait after your visit to Sacre Coeur ;)

Montmartre is incredibly touristy, especially the streets that lead up to the Sacre Coeur, but it is a lovely part of Paris to visit. The views from outside the Sacre Coeur across the city are wonderful. It was fun to take a trip up the funicular and wander around the street. There are plenty of artists wanting to draw a... More

I took the metro to Abessess ahd walked up Montmartre. After my stairmaster experience going up the hill I landed at the famous artist area where there are 10s of artists ready to sketch/paint your portrait. The area is surrounded by cafe and is ideal for an hour of people watching. I then walked to Sacre Coeur both to see... More

Get a cable car to the highest point of the city, watch the sun go down. See the Sacre-Coeur, walk around the small streets. Be aware of people trying to sell you things. A lot of young people were drinking up here, there were even boxes of beer casually being sold.

A must for any trip to Paris! Setting of the film Amelie, but also many many sites in its own right. Artists in the square, touristy shops, countless, well-priced cafés. The train tour is well worth the couple of Euro charge.

Nice place to sit down and enjoy take away brekfast or lunch or drinks in the evening. The park itself, in front of stairs, is closed in the evenings. Nice restaurants behind the church.

If you get a chance, hook up with a "Paris Walks" tour to visit this area of Paris. It is a terrific way to get a full appreciation for the neighbourhoods. Best baguettes in Paris are here! Lovely views from Sacre Coeur and other high points in Montmartre.

OK - the church (sacre coeur) is worth a visit, but the area surrounding it has long since lost it's bohemian charm for the arty farty. It's decidedly grotty and rather dodgy - avoid at night unless you want to be mugged. The view from the top of the hill is OK too - you get a vista of the... More
