Since Montmartre was close to our hotel it was my first experience of Paris. I loved the winding road with many shops and restaurants on the way up the hill. The vendors and street performers were wonderful and not pushy like you see in other areas. The view was beautiful but the area around the Sacra-Coeur steps is very crowded... More

This area calls for exploration! We would have liked to spend an afternoon checking it out but didn't have enough time. If you have time, it was surprisingly fun to have a portrait drawn. We found the people in the street were MUCH less costly and did a wonderful job -- best to watch them do others and pick the... More

Montmartre is the place to be when you visit Paris. You get the view of whole of Paris. Must visit the area near Sacré-Cœur, which offers lot for restaurants and you can get a Sketch made by one of the Artists (remember to bargain).

I don´t like crowds, despite that, I loved Montmatre. I don´t plan to come to Paris again but if I do that will definitely be the place I won´t miss. Narrow, winding streets where you get lost easily but... that´s what gives you all the flavor. the only place in Paris where you can still appreciate sights the impressionists and... More

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.
