This is the square most artists come to display their artwork. You'll find amazing art pieces from the artists themselves. I bought one here. It was a little expensive but you cannot bargain with the artist, it was worth every euro!

No visit to Paris seems to be complete without a visit to this place. The square is housed by artists or people who call themselves artists. You can have your picture drawn here, even a caricature. The atmosphere is nice and the square is surroundgeluid by restaurants.

Great little place to walk around and just appreciate. Lots of lovely shops and the cobbled streets are lovely. On a steep hill so heels aren't advised.

Great place just to walk around and take in the sights. Some amazing artist’s work many at reasonable prices. At times they are a little pushy as they tout for your attention but it is all in good spirits. Definitely worth a minimum of 30 minutes of your time, maybe more

touristy yes, pricey yes, unique...YES! Had a great time here. Despite what people may say about the Parisians, we had only good things to say. We have been before but it was the first time that we had come specifically to Paris with our 10 year old daughter. We ate at the pavement cafes, service was quick but we were... More

As an artist myself, I enjoyed seeing such great paintings by the local artists. My husband and I bought some water colour paintings for us and our family at good prices from a very pleasant artist. We were there mid-day and found it easy to walk around - not crowded at all. We would definitely consider going again the next... More

Every time that we visit Paris we make a trip to Place Du Tertre and have one of the artist draw us a photo with a Paris landmark in the background. The prices are reasonable and so far the drawings we have sat for have turned out great. Conveniently located to other great places to visit while in the area.

Au Cadet de Gascogne, Jan 28, 2014 We had a charmed late dinner on a cold Paris night. The Kir Royale warmed us up and we enjoyed the talented pianist who played everything, from romantic French and international tunes to requested favorites in Italian, French and English. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere quaint. The food was good! We... More

It's the famous place with painters who sell idyllic paintings of Paris or can draw you. Make sure to bargain hard since prices are steep here! Since it is in the Montmartre area, it is most often packed with tourists and therefore, not very fun to walk through. Restos and bars around the place are overpriced (save your money to... More

Loved the place. A small walking section of tiny streets with struggling artists painting and tiny fantastic little cafe's. We wondered among the paintings but nothing excited us enough to figure out how to get it back to the U.S. We has mussells and wine at one of the cafe's .... Excellent. Just sat there taking it all in in... More
