It's such a nice place to visit, preferably in the end of the afternoon. First take a hot chocolat, then just walk around. The ambiance, lovely shops, many artists. The typical Paris' atmosphere! A place to love

Even on a clouded drizzly day we were happy to visit the small streets of Montmartre. The painters, the tiny shops, the sacré coeur and the view are nice to see.

This is great area and I really enjoyed wandering around the streets. We were staying locally and I found that some roads were thronged with tourists, yet others I was the only one. Which was great! Loved dipping in and out of all the amazing cheese shops, bakeries etc. There is loads to see and do in this area just... More

Sacre Coeur is lovely. The view from up there is lovely. Many of the artists selling their work in the streets, some say they seem to be selling art works done mass production, I felt much more a true sense of lovely ambiance. You won't find many budding Picasso's, but you'll find souvenirs of your trip.

Overall, the area is a disgusting tourist trap that emphasizes the very worst aspects of humanity. As many others have said, the tourist industry (and the very worst part of the tourist industry) completely and utterly dominates this neighborhood of Paris. While it is a good jumping off point for some nearby nicer neighborhoods of northern Paris, the area immediately... More

Mont Marte is a favourite spot around the globe. The cathedral is stunnning especially at night and there are many great photo spots. In the cathedral I like to go to the vaults below on a sunny day and the shadows and sunlight makes for tremendous contrast against the graves. To climb to the turrets in the cathedral is tiring...

Unfortunately, the tourist industry has taken over what must have been a charming area. Sacre Coeur is lovely. The view from up there is lovely. But so many things are tacky and designed to separate tourists from their money. Many of the "artists" selling their work in the streets seem to be selling art works done in factories, by mass...

When visiting Paris, you must take time to wander around Montmartre, poke into the shops, visit the artists and just enjoy everything Parisian!
