There is a central area of arts and craft booths. There are a variety of cafes and restaurants throughout the area. There is a Creperie Genia that sells yummy crepes. There is usually a line but the wait is short. There is a small cozy restaurant called Seb'on within walking distance from the center that serve excellent meals at reasonable... More

All the world is in this area of Paris! It was a separate city that became enveloped by the growth of the city. Now it is an international home of immigrants and bohemians alike. Be prepared for lots of people and protect your possessions. Wear walking apparel and enjoy the free spirit of the area. Artsy and international with the... More

Love the square with artists, the excellent restaurants (try La Bonne Franquette), people watching, and the Basilica. To bypass some of the steep steps take the venicular lift half way up the hill.

I though it was going to be an especific attraction, but when I got there I found it was just the front part of the Basilic and the train that takes the visitors down.

Paris is such a magical city, that it puts you in a good mood immediately and visiting the beautiful quarter of Montmarte, nestled at the foot of the grand Sacre Couer cathedral will make your day. Yes it does have its share of crowded shops selling cheap souvenirs but the place has its own charm that is still alive today.... More

Montmartre is a special place. The small streets ascending to Scared Heart Cathedrale. Reminds me of San Francisco only more quaint. An artistic community awaits your travels with unique views of Paris skyline! Not to miss, then you can really say you have been to Paris!

Paris' highest natural point. Has a village vibe with its winding cobblestone streets, food markets and streetside artists. A true stomping ground for bohemians. Reminded me of Greenwich Village in New York, minus the hills that is. We began with a food tour followed by a hike up 270 steps to the Basilica du Sacré-Cœur, as well as another 300... 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.
