I went there twice,just could not resist it. The cobbled streets, the singers,the performers,the artists, the cafes, the quaint shops, the Basilica Sacré-Cœur, the view of the city it was simply fascinating. I felt a strange connection with that place. There is so much art and music around, it therapeutic. Not to miss the amazing street food :)

I find this place interesting and I bet that art lovers would love staying here. Food is quite expensive but worth a penny due to many art works to see. Place de Turtre is a place must see.

We joined the Montmartre Sandemans free walking tour by meeting the guide in front of Starbucks at the Blanche metro station on line 2, at 2pm. Metro Station Blanche is just across the street from the Moulin Rouge.We spotted our guide as she was in a typical red neweurope t-shirt. Montmartre typifies all things quintessentially Parisan, from terraced cafes to... More

It was the most beautiful place in Paris. My trip to paris was just for 3 days and in those three days I managed to visit quite a lot of places and one of my favourite place is Montmarte. Amazing view plus an artistic square. Truly an amazing place.

Took a very cool trip by car up to the Basilica atop Monmartre. Saw where Picasso had a workshop and where Van Gogh lived.

Yes, it's a bit seedy - but it was definitely worth the trip. The artists are there, paintings are for sale, some are painting portraits of people, it's fun to watch but you can't take pictures of them or their work. There is one street near the Moulin Rouge that is trashy and stinky - lots of vendors selling things... More

Everybody loves this place! So much history! Famous artists lived here and you can walk through the square and see current artists at work. Honestly some of the portraits they painted of people were the best I have seen. The artwork is more pricy than I thought. The roads are narrow and cobblestone. You get such a feeling foe old...

From Sacre Coeur you have this great view of the city below, yes there is a commerical feel to it, but you can still walk around and find some hidden gems. There is a park where the artist from past and present paint. You can talk with the artist and buy one of their works (yes it's tourist price!) but... More
