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.

A "must do" when visiting Paris. Stunning views of the city from Sacre Coeur The 18 arr. is full of local artists in the area of Place du Tertre. Loved every minute. Take the time to walk about and enjoy the culture, surroundings and everything Parisian. No incidents during our visit to Montmartre but we were forewarned by our guide... More

I chose to stay in Montmartre, not just visit the place. I loved it. It's one place where you can feel like a local. Bohemian to say the least. Walk out your door and no need to travel anywhere. It's all on your doorstep. We did the tourist thing in the mornings and returned to. Montmartre just after lunch on... More

The narrow artisan street will give you a rich culture of Paris along with small cafes as the one in the movie Amilee. The moulin rouge to Monmartre is a great walk with many small and beautiful cafes. To the top is is a spectacular view of the city in lights. If possible take a guided tour to this area... More

After entering the lowest level approach to the Sacre Coeur on April 16th 2015, my nephew was verbally barraged and then was grabbed around his right wrist and shoulder. I was with him and shouted repeatedly to stop, stop, stop and no, no no. This was about 9:30 in the morning and the crowds were light. No one came to... More

A place to go! Either you take the stairs or use the funicular (at the left of the park at the bottom - cost a metro ticket). The view is amazing and the atmosphere very relaxing. Then we walk around and you have a lot of small different place to eat. Lovely place.

We did the Sandeman Montmartre walk and it was one my favorite activities. Ask for Inga, she is fabulous. They take you past the Moulin rouge and the crowded Parisian streets and walk you past where Vincent Van Gogh lived and where Picasso paid for his meal with a painting. You then walk up the hill to Sacre Coeur and... More

Great area near Sacre-Coeur. It really feels like a true neighborhood as most of Paris does. It's filled with artists and other creative people. The vibe is active. Plenty to see.

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.
