We loved the area at the top of the hill with all the artists, musicians, cafes, beautiful church and shops. We were especially impressed with the handmade products in the pottery shop! This is the best area for souvenirs. We enjoyed sipping wine and eating crepes while listening to the musicians. Be mindful of pickpockets and anyone approaching you to... More

A lot of Paris is very commercialized and Montmartre was wonderful. Took a tasting tour and visited some of the great bakeries, cafes etc. Don't go to Paris without visiting.

Cool artist community with unique shops and restaurants. Watch for pickpockets at night - especially in larger groups. Really cool to see (we wandered and had dinner).

Montmartre was on my agenda for this recent trip to Paris. I knew that it would be very touristy and crowded, but I still wanted to go. It was worth it to see Sacre Couer and the views from up high. I wouldn't recommend spending alot of time there due to the crowds, but it is a lovely place to... More

What a classic french atmosphere. It is wonderful to walk through the streets and see the artists at work. Well worth stopping in a cafe just to watch the world go by for a while. An absolute must see on any trip to Paris

This is the hangout of artists who want to paint your picture and display their artwork. We found this is the best place to buy souviniers. Nice restaurants, too. You do have to go up a zillion steps to get to it.

Montmartre area is great, it is well worth the trip. Just watch out for the sketch artist. They start drawing as soon as they see you. They don't stop unless you are very firm. If they finish they want anywhere from 60 Euro to 100 Euro for the sketch. We were told not to pay over 30 Euro. Maybe even... More

A bit more relaxed than any other arrondissement Montmartre has been the home to painters and other artist for years. Wandering around the streets brings a surprise at every corner. There do seem to be some pick pockets, but hey they are everywhere in Paris. Just be aware of your surroundings. Tons of cafes to enjoy as you watch the... More

A short trip on the Metro from our hotel (Minerve) and we were in Montmartre, Visited the Sacre Coeur which was very moving and also outside offers the best views over Paris. This was the only place in Paris we saw genuine accordion players (i'm sure there are others but we saw two in one day). Walked up and down... 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.
