By all means, you MUST visit Monmarte when in Paris. The "starving" artists produce for sale some remarkable works. Our only regret is we didn't but more. Located at the highest point in Paris, you also can visit the Sacre Cur church while there. Then , The Moulin Rouge is at the bottom of the hill. Get tickets and go!

Montmartre is the place to be if you want to experience Paris bohemian site. Take the funiculaire or exercise and use the stairs to get to the commercial/turistic area. Walk around some narrow streets, taste the crepes ( cheese and ham or banana and chocolate are to die for), visit the many shops, have your portrait done (but only at... More

This area is very touristy, but its winding streets, the presence of Sacre Coeur and views of the city are worth the visit.

This is where you can see local artists at work while eating at an outside cafe and buy a few souvenirs. Sacred Heart cathedral is close by which is beautiful and there is a lovely panoramic view of parts of Paris. I enjoyed a lovely day outside taking in the sights, foods, wine, and culture of Paris.

Firstly I used the funicular to the top and started walking around Montmartre. The little restaurant everywhere and in the middle of the street or on the footpath can be fund the artists doing their paint work. you can truly get the Paris feeling while walking around

Walking the cobblestone streets watching artists painting at their easels, also viewing their artwork on sale is great. Many artists wandering amidst the tourists asking if they can sketch you for a fee, of course, we checked out a few of the different portraits as they finished and they looked very good. Many great cafés with lots of good affordable... More

This was an amazing place! There are so many art and food vendors on Montmartre and the views from the mountain are absolutely stunning! This was a true taste of Paris and a wonderful place to buy non-cliche (and cliche) Paris souvenirs

i fell in love with Montmartre on my first visit to Paris so long ago. I bought a painting which still hangs in my office. So i associate the place with its historic art roots, and though it's changed art is still around. The cobble stones and buildings will remind you of so many movies. Charming and a must for... More

Staying in Montmartre

Neighborhood Profile
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.
