So glad we didn't miss this little tour! We learned so much about the Montmarte area and who lived there! It enabled us to see much more than if we had tried to walk it ourselves on our first visit to Paris! And the audio worked great! We were blessed with a beautiful sunny day and saw so much and...

Great tour. It's a simple little train ride that we found out about with our Paris Pass. (highly recommend) We took the train to waste time, not really knowing what we would see. The train weaves though Montmartre which is a fascinating little neighborhood. There is commentary (recorded) on the train but the best part is going to the top... More

It you don't feel like hauling yourself up the steep cobbled streets of Montmartre, this is the best way to go. Reasonable commentary as one heads up the hill. We managed to miss the train to go down so make sure you get the exact departure point and time if you are going to make the return journey. Otherwise, get... More

It's a slow moving train cruising around Montmartre main attractions and stopping occasionally. Probably suits the best small kids and elderly since this neighborhood may be quite steep for pedestrians sometimes.

Yes the audio is dodgy and it gets a but rough at times. But it shows you streets that you don't know exists. It takes into really interesting parts of Montmartre . It's cheap 6.50 euros. I loved it. The end stop in the market circle with all the artists is lovely and an easy walk to the basilica. Worth... More

This was fine for seeing around Montmartre and getting your bearings and one way of getting up the hills! It is very bumpy (partly due to the cobbled streets) and the audio was limited, poor quality and kept cutting out so we didn't learn much! If you have children or trouble walking then it is fine but otherwise I would... More

As the title states, the train is bumpy (don't take if you have an easily upset stomach) and you can't hear the speakers. That said, it does take you "up the hill" and you could get off the train at the top and wander back down stopping at many shops along the way. The train seems to be aging, and... More

When we bought the tickets I asked when was the last train, the drivers said 10:30. At 10:04 we left the restaurant and saw that the train was still there but dark we have our tickets to the driver and he said he was closed he didn't want to take us back at the beginning. I had to argue with... 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.
