Much as I liked Pere la Chaise and Montparnasse cemeteries, I found Montmartre a somewhat depressing experience both times I visited. Unlike the other two which were larger and parklike garden cemeteries, Montmartre is tightly packed and many graves overgrown and poorly upkept. The pics...More

We visited the Montmartre Cemetery as the first stop in a self-determined walking tour of Montmartre sites we were interested in (culminating at Sacre Coeur). We made the mistake of starting our walking tour later in the afternoon on a November Tuesday when the daylight...More

Cool place to go to get some peace and quiet. You can look at cute stray cats and beautiful art on headstones. A warning, cemeteries in France have opening and closing times so make sure you exit before the gates close.

Taking a day to fully explore Montmartre while in Paris is well worthwhile. Sacré-Cœur and Moulin Rouge are popular for good reason however this charming Arrondissement has much more to offer. Rather than walk up the hill like so many tours we opted to arrive...More

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

Was there the yesterday and saw fresh hay in a box that looked like a little house for cats behind one of the mausoliums pretty much out of sight.
