The place where artists used to reside, Montmatre is a quaint town style area. From the church, you get a quite amazing view of Paris, very highly recommended once Paris lights up at night!

You enter another world when walking the streets of Montmartre. Super attractive and great shops. Visiting the Sacre Coeur de Monmartre is a must. There is even an excalator to reach the church and a fantastic scene of Paris awaits one. We found local artists performing in front of the church. This is a real taste of Parish.

Astonishing and super beautiful area of Paris, with the Basilica of the Sacred and shops full of art works and painters. Highly recommended. It's also Free.

Walk to Montmartre Village was one of the best memories of my Paris Vacation. Thanks to John, the one who told me about the place. He was also staying in the same hotel. It is almost one hour walk from the heart of the City. I suggest you be on your sneakers and sweat pants as this is more of... More

We avoided most of the immensely crowded area and had a great time. North and West of Sacre Cour contains almost unlimited things to see. We did make a quick visit to Sacre Cour and saw the view, but it's very crowded. Stop and have something to eat. Visit history. Have fun.

Montmarte is the Artisian quarter of Paris. It is vibey and full of artists and musicians. Amazing to experience and gives a true French feel to it.

This area reminded me a little of the roads in cinque terre, Italy. Cuteness! Winding roads, stairs to help you up the hill and then a gorgeous view once you are at top

My wife and I, on our first visit to Paris together, spent our first full day in Montmartre and soaked in the lovely architecture, shops, and sights. Visiting on a Saturday, there were plenty of other tourists, but we enjoyed ourselves nonetheless, and were pleasantly surprised at how hospitable the service people were in every place we stopped. Perhaps not... More

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.
