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

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

I do not really know. However, can you not email the town hall and ask them for a list of the artists. Best luck. 0 seconds ago

It's a personal choice, of course. But in December the biggest factor will be the weather. Both the Place du Tertre and the basilica steps will be pretty dreary in the rain. The chances of a stunning sunset are not as... More
