A friend and I took a walking tour here and it was every once of amazing. Our tour guide Nancy had the best puns and she was filled with great information. She suggested a cute little place for dinner called Le Potager. This was by far the best food we had ever eaten. I would fly from America to paris... More

We visited this area. Getting there is not difficult bit it does feel like you are a million miles from where you started. We did have difficulty getting back to our area, "home". When we got off of the subway/metro, we took the stairs and boy boy, what a load of stairs! we did not notice the signs that let... More

The Montmartre area of Paris is a much cheaper region, you are talking neary five Euros's cheaper for souvenirs. There is an amazing chocolate shop which is also worth a look around. Food is also alot cheaper in this area too.

Great area of Paris, especially in the evening. My girlfriend an I got our caricatures done during the day and the guy was brilliant. *tip* make sure you walk round to the artist square, do not get your picture done from the people walking around (not as good). At night this area comes alive with the Moulin Rouge lighting up,... More

Go to Montmartre to see Sacre Coeur, of course, and its beautiful views of the city from high on the hill. But right nearby are cafes, sidewalk artists, and a small, quaint Salvador Dali museum. Be sure to ride the funicular up or down the mountain for 1.7 euro, and visit the stairs next to it that are iconic to... More

Monmartre is one of the 'sacred' places of Paris for it's where you can feel the 'French scent', delight yourself with a good wine in a bar or a coffee in a traditional café. Walk along the streets, go to Sacré Coeur, please yourself with the stunning sight of Paris from there and then come down through the famous stairs.... More

Loved all the artists in the square and there are some great dining options there as well. It was cool hanging around here I wanted to make it back but didn't have the time. Highly recommend experiencing the creative culture of Paris. Beware of conmen though, police ought to better patrol this! Keep your bag and money close.

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.
