My biggest shock was seeing the Place du Tertre full of covered restaurant tables fenced and the artists occupying a metre on the outside. I've since read this is the case April to Nov. So artists have full use of the square Nov - April, the coldest months of the year when it is very difficult to draw outdoors! What... More

What a great place. So alive and full of character. We only got harrased once by the resident peddlers. They were trying it on everyone then the cops arrived and they absolutely bolted. Quite amusing really. The street train is fun and the view up the hill is breathtaking. Great place to spend an afternoon.

Quite busy when we went in afternoon, We enjoyed a walk around the main quaint streets and saw many artists in the middle of their work. Very nice atmosphere, not to be missed. We then walked up to the Sacre Coeur. An enjoyable afternoon.

When visiting Montmartre we arrived in the afternoon, with a lot of people. Had some "Frenchj Onion Soup" at a restaurant acroos from Saccre de Coeur church, and then rode the funicular that took us up there. Behind the church is the Artist Square or Plaza, don't miss it, because this is the best place in town other than the... More

Located at the top of Paris' tallest point this location is very quaint and nice to walk around on a sunny day. The square was full of artists with their crafts and the restaurants were bustling.

Visited on a sunny April evening. You feel like you are a million miles from Paris yet you have an amazing view across the whole city. Walk a few metres up the road and you have traditional bustling squares (Place du Tertre) and busy streets (Rue Norvin) full of street artists and entertainment. I loved watching the street artists below... More

I have always visit this attraction first every time I have made a trip to Paris. Yes it is very crowded at times best to avoid weekends and visit as soon as it opens otherwise you cannot enjoy the area and all the artists around.

We started at Blanche station and walked up. It is such a beautiful neighbourhood until you get to the Disneyland of sacre cour. That said, I've been there with less crowds. I think you just expect the worse and appreciate it for the beautiful place it is.

Well worth the climb up the steep streets and final sets of steps. The church is up there with the best in Paris, and the views from the front are breathtaking over a large portion of Paris.

Just behind Sacre Coeur cathedral, there is his amazing place. Fill with lots of artists & painters very gifted. All around cafés that will help have a nice drink while enjoying your time. I would really recommend having a drink & a portrait after your visit to Sacre Coeur ;)
