This area has a lot to see and do. You can visit the oldest church in France, see where famous artists lived while working, and see walk through the artists' square.

Great neighborhood to wander. Good food, small shops and ambiance. No wonder so many great artists got inspiration here.

I must admit, it lost a bit of the nostalgia by replacing the artists with some restaurants/cafés, but still worth a visit for sure! This place is buzzing and one can feel it in the air! Most artist doing portrait studies and caricature with a few still indulging in oil paint, pastels, charcoal etc. A true delight to watch. Highly... More

We had a lot of fun wandering around the area with our kids. So much going on! We enjoyed the hills and the atmosphere with roving musicians. We had portraits made of the kids which were beautiful and a neat experience. Note that there are some artists walking around with clipboards who will try to make a portrait.  There is... More

First time to this area of Paris. If you can, so the stairs...its makes you a better person. If you can't there is a two minute tram ride up the hill, which will cost you a metro ticket. Great little shops, restaurants, and the church. Just watch out for the piles of guys selling beer, water, and trinkets. You can... More

So glad we stayed in this neighborhood and got to spend a good amount of time walking around. Lots of great places to stop and have a glass of wine and a bite to eat. Sacre Coure is impressive and the views spectacular. Walking around the square with the artists painting is my idea of what everyone should think of... More

Beautiful tree lined streets and a public square found on Paris' highest elevation. The square finds many painters selling their works. No one approaches you so there is no pressure to buy anything. My wife bought a beautiful water color of the Eiffel Tower. Be prepared for a little hike as this is the highest point in all Paris

Find a little bistro or bar - and drink up a bottle of wine with someone who you love. Then have a stroll up to Sacre Coeur. Heaven.

If you go here, I would highly suggest using Rick Steve's walking tour. I actually did not go into Sacre Coeur, but took a moment to scan the Paris horizon, take pictures, and eat my breakfast on a bench halfway up the stairs to the cathedral. I did, however, go into Saint Pierre de Montemartre. I believe it has four... More
