Montmartre is a unique little village rich in history, art, artists, musicians, singers, famous Basilica on the highest hill in Paris, infamous Red Light District and home to the best cabaret show on earth: Moulin Rouge.

Wander around and take a look at what the local artists are painting or drawing, if you have the time have one of them sketch you, I did , and now I have a unique memento of my visit.

Upon exiting the metro station I knew we needed to walk up the hill, however much my wife did not want to, but when you get to the top it is certainly worth it. This is the first place recommend to us by friends and family that had visited Paris. The shops are filled with art and very reasonably (cheap)... More

Went here 3 times out of the 4 visits in Paris. 2 times at night. I love the people sitting outside for dinner and the artists on the street.

One of the most romantic and artistic areas in Paris. We had a portrai made for us with my girlfriend which was fairly priced.

"Basilica of Sacre-Coeur" the big white church is the main attraction on this hill.... Montmatre is known for some of famous artists who had worked in or around it ....you can find portrait sketchers and caricaturists in the adjacent street... beware of pickpocketing, thanks to our guide who had pre informed this.

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.
