I love Montmartre! Romantic atmosphere with pretty shops and buildings, with street bands playing music on the top of Montmartre. From the top, u can have a nice view over France. However, the price is rather high here for everything!

The church is beautiful & the funicular ride was interesting. However, the rest of the area is nothing but a tourist trap. Beware of pickpockets in the crowded streets.

I love Paris and try to visit at least once a year but Montmarte has a special place in my heart and I always look for a nice hotel in the area (usually Du Moulin). Walking around in Montmarte is wonderful and you wouldn't find a finer place to taste the true Parisian spirit.

We had a lovely time walking and walking and walking this historic neighborhood of Paris. At the very end just West of the Abbesses Metro Station we found the most wonderful patisserie to end our walk. This is just a wonderful place. It is magical as is all of Paris to us. Felt we were following in the footsteps of... More

Here you will have an amazing view over Paris, it is very close to Moulin Rouge, the Salvador Dali museum, Starbucks, restaurants. The streets are very narrow and very parisian. A lot of artists are drawing or singing at the corners of the streets. Also, this is the best place to buy souvenirs, because you will find the same things... More

I visited Paris many years ago. Montmartre had such deep impression on me. Whenever I saw paintings or pictures of Bohemian paris, accordium started played in my head and they reminded me of Montmartre. I always wanted to go back. So I went back recently. We arrived when it was still bright. It was overwhelmingly crowded and slammed with tourists.... More

The Montmartre area of Paris is to the north of the City and has a funicular railway to take you to the top of the hill that gives you a great view of the City of Paris on a clear day. You can also visit the white dome of Basilica of the Sacré Cœur and its surrounding streets that are... More

If you go to Montmartrre, only important thing to do is to walk this neighborhood, the alleys with little restaurants, a vineyard, and a beatiful church. Moulin Rouge and sex shops, nonsense

While this is a beautiful area, it was overloaded with tourists and lost the charm that it use to have. I would recommend a short visit after a visit to the Sacre-coeur.

taking the cable car up to Montmartre reminded me loosely of my time taking a similar cable car up to Manakamana near Kathmandu, Nepal which also had a religious temple at the top; the Hindu Goddess Bhagwati to be exact. i went during the evening and watched the sun set and the night crawlers come out with beer for sale...
