You can definitely tell why artists flocked to Montmartre. It is such a lively and spirited area. You also have a view of beautiful Paris and the Eiffel Tower from Sacre Couer. I highly suggest you stay in this area or take several days to visit this special part of Paris.

After visiting Sacre Couer stay a while in Montmatre, a favourite area of Paris. Follow the Rue Lepic towards the Moulin Rouge making sure you pass some time in the Cafe des deux Moulins, where the movie Amelie was based. Fayre here too is of good quality and reasonably priced. Lemonade on draught was new to me.

Big hill, LOTS of stairs, but worth the exertion. The basilica is inspirational. Fun spot to walk around, but very touristy and overpriced these days. The artists and writers have moved elsewhere, although there are plenty of shops and distractions to amuse. A lot like the Village in New York. Wear comfortable shoes!

I just love Montmatre which combines over the top tourism, with bustling Sacre Coeur and street artists and around the next corner is the only vineyard left in Montmatre and delightful restaurants in Abesse.

Although there's lots of tourists, it's still a wonderful place to go to, feel a little bit more of Paris. Cobble stones, restaurants, artists with their beautiful little artwork!

Booked a walking tour to view and learn about the history of Montmare. Was a very sunny day and the walk consisted of cobbled paths on hilly terrain. Rich in history and nostalgia, this place is a must see for those interested in the lives of various writers, artists and creative people in the past

Very interesting area, once you are out of the tourist areas. A couple of great galleries worth seeing. Give the main strip restaurants a miss as the food is average, but the settings are wonderful.

Montmartre is excellent. The atmosphere is wonderful. Lots of artists wanting to sell their paintings. Be aware that lots also want to sketch you and your loved ones. You have to be quite forceful if you don't want them too. Lots of places for you to eat/drink at. Lovely way to spend a few hours. Metro is local also.

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.
