we did a foodie tour through Viator in the Montmarte neighborhood and it was worth the price we paid. we learned so much about the history of the area, how to find authentic shops with authentic foods (bakeries, chocolate shops, cheese shops, butcher shops). We also learned a bit about how to tell if food was fresh and how the... More

Montmartre is really good fun and has the budget restaurants that have become relatively rare elsewhere. Little train is very worth doing. Views are amazing. (NB Our Uber driver said he wasn't allowed to drive right to the top so we staggered up four flights of steps, but then saw plenty of private cars at the top!)

Passed through this area to get to Sacrecur and found it very seedy...like Soho in London....once at Sacrecur watch out for the groups of African fellas wanting you to stop and making a bangle for your wrist,then demanding€5.....i told them to cut mine off or accept the 1€ coin i had in my pocket....very intimidating and they position themselves on...

The walking was difficult--up and down hills and avoiding dog poop on the sidewalks. There are many interesting places and if you hang in there, you will get a gorgeous view from the top of the hill. There is a funicular that you can take part way--we took it down, but would have taken it up if we had not... More

This is a must visit place. It has a fantastic view of the city. It has beautiful and interesting church at the top. The streets at Montmartre are filled with cafes, art shops, tourist shops and you can have your portrait made as well.

Yeah, it is beautiful. You can find great small shops in here with handmade things such as clothes, jewelry, paintings. It's pretty overcrowded and i was a bit afraid of backpackers. However, watch your stuff and enjoy your walk. Climb to the top to see the main attraction. From there you can enjoy the panoramic view of Paris.

We love to come to Montmatre at least once every time we are in Paris. The former artist/boheme village is nowadays a rather expensive place to live. And they sure know why: cosy little streets, fine shops and nice food, Sacre Coeur church (must-visit) and great views on Paris. We enjoy going on market days and in the evening after... More

Montmartre is worth a visit to see not only the sacre cœur, but to soak up the artistic environment, street musicians, portrait artists and a good selections of restaurants along with a panoramic view of Paris. It has something for everyone.

If you are lucky to pick a chilly winter day, where the sky is clear then head off to the sacre coeur basilique. Visit Montmartre, hands in your pockets, ( avoid pick pockets too) and smell the crepes, the fireplaces in old houses, sausage grilling or old cigars from cafe terrasse s. The walk is a bit tiring but no... More

Visit Montmartre for typical Parisian ambiance. Be sure to visit early in the day as there is a different vibe as the late afternoon begins. It gets very busy and there is a lot of drinking. The crowd can get very loud. Be sure to visit the church and artist area.

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.
