Montmatre is an interesting location. Located at the top of a hillside, the most significant site is the Basilica, overlooking Paris. The Basilica's interior is very pretty and very well maintained. In front of the Basilica is the best place to view Paris. Around the corner from the Basilica is the town square, with all types of souvenir shop, ice... More

The views from the basilica are panoramic across paris... But the best surprise for me was the FABRIC shops (near the base of the steps below the basilica) leave your man at the cafe where he can enjoy beer and good pizza while you wander through the most amazing textile, fabric and haberdashery superstores!,, you will need two visits to...

This place has an old world charm to it that you simply cannot miss. I have been to Paris before and due to lack of time could not visit this place. And after being here I realised what I missed. This place is gorgeously beautiful. We went during the wine festival in October 2014. The place was bustling. We had... More

Walking through and around Montmartre is definitely one of the highlights of my trip. There are beautiful buildings and cobblestones and vineyards and fountains everywhere. Very relaxing and nice.

LIke any other city center point in europe. Small, quite & charming. You can admire the less than impressive paris skyline among the throngs of tourists and might be lucky to get a good photograph. You can enjoy the evening sitting at the steps sipping a beer bought from the vendors roaming around. Some street performance is always on at... More

I arrived to sacre coeur on a Sunday. Mistake, there was a festival which was nice,but very very crowded, difficult to walk. I was able to see the view and part of the church, then we went down some stairs to the side of the church and found a wonderful spot for lunch, a nice outdoor cafe with very good... More

Of course there is the Sacre Couer but Montmartre has so much more to offer. We did a street walking tour which I found on the internet and I am so glad we did. You arrive away from tourist central and meander your way down back streets and get a real feel for the true Montmartre. You come in the... More
