Montmartre is a vibrant and captivating neighbourhood with bohemian influence and full of “joie de vivre”. There are plenty of lovely cafés, charming winding roads, colourful merry-go-rounds and the famous Moulin Rouge! Montmartre has a unique ambiance and it's easy to get here by metro or bus. In the 19th century, Montmartre was also a very popular place for famous... More

Real, genuine talent on display in the streets. The bustling squares teemed with artists who proudly displayed their works. A definate must see if you appreciate art or just want to enjoy authentic French culture.

The montmartre was one of my favorite places in the whole trip. This area is magical, especially before Christmas. The streets are beautiful and romantic, the artist paint pictures and sell them, you can get a portrait ( I didn't ), there are lovely coffee shops and restaurants and the lights give the most incredible atmosphere.

Have been to Paris many times. Have been to Sacre Coeur before but missed Montmartre. Don't miss it. Worth the visit. Very quaint with all the artists.

So quaint! There are many restaurants and tourist shops. The architecture is beautiful; visit the Basilica du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre while there. Plus, you can wait til sunset to view the Eiffel Tower. A good spot to buy some local artwork, too.

Lovely to walk around Montmartre, especially in the summer or springs. Best is to start walking from down the hill in the late summer afternoon, stop for a coffee, then go all the way up and make some pictures. The Church is a must see. Local restaurants are too touristic. Watch your belongings and avoid street merchants. For the rest... More

You can't go to Paris without a visit to Montmarte. The market is terrific and the local artists are fantastic. The only really disappointing part is that we had a coffee at a restaurant outside. I thought it would be enjoyable to sit and people watch! That experience cost $20AUD for two coffees.

We found a walk described online from Timeout which gives a great insight to Montmartre. It take you to the cemetery with Berlioz and Zola as well as the almost village atmosphere of Rue Lepic (loved the seafood shop on the corner) the windows, tiny vineyard, Jean Marais scuplture as well as the more well known and touristy stuff. The... More

Staying in Montmartre

Neighbourhood Profile
Montmartre
Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colours, 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.
