Located in the 18th Arrondissement, this elevated rural neighborhood on the outskirts of the city has a collection of upscale shops and cafés and still exudes hints of old village charm.

This place was very nice and what I think of when I think of France. The rest of Paris was not nice and mostly disappointing. It is dirty and crowded and overly touristy. This place is what they show you when they advertise Paris. Very pretty

The beautiful Sacre-Coeur is at the top of a 130 metre high hill. There are many stairs up to the top but also steep narrow roads if you dont fancy steps. It has a brilliant nightlife with bars restaurants and shops. A really must see if you are visiting Paris. The church is magnificent and the view of Paris breathtaking

Whilst it feels a bit touristy in places...it also has the atmosphere of the great long lost artists. There are plenty of street artists willing to sketch as well as places to eat. It has its own unique place in Paris. I wish we had explored it more

We went to Sacre Couer after a recommendation from a tour guide and a fellow Aussie. We had only beautiful memories of Paris up until then and I wish I hadn't wasted precious hours coming here. Sacre Couer itself is ok, the architecture obviously different to the rest of the churches in Paris; however, it was overcrowded with rude tourists... More

This area is the highest point in Paris so there are wonderful views of the city - especially from Sacre Coeur Basilica - but it is also lovely to stroll around and grab some dinner. Granted it is extremely touristy but in a good way! There will be lots of artists milling around asking you if you want your portrait... More

I was a little unsure about visiting this area. I might have been slightly influenced by a certain movie about a certain place in Montmatre. BUT I went and it was a great experience. This is one of those places that leaves a lasting impression on what Paris was all about. A great experience. I highly recommend visiting.

This was my favourite area of Paris. We did the touristy stuff and then came here. We ate dinner here every night, and just wandered around the beautiful streets.

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.
