Lovely area
Nov. 2019
We mainly visited the Montmartre district, but also wandered around the surrounding areas. There are many things to see and enjoy and cafes and restaurants are plenty too. The many narrow and winding streets add to the atmosphere in certain parts.

Warning: French apartment
Apr. 2020
Warning: We booked an apartment through stayz.com called 'Sacre Coeur Apartment' @ 6 Rue Seveste, Paris 75018, but due to covid we could not get into Paris. However the owner, Andreas, refused to answer any emails nor did he refund any of the booking costs. I have asked Stayz to investigate and remove the property from their website however, it remains on their site even though he is not responding to them either.

Join the fervour........of the market
Jan. 2020
Before the start of the transport strike on 5 Dec we took the opportunity to visit the twice weekly fresh market in the 18th Arr, just off the metro station at Barbes. This market is also known as the Arab market due to the demographic of the neighbourhood. Wow! the produce! The prices! Incredible. Weighed down with multiples of everything (2 pineapples for €2!) we jumped back on the metro within the 2 hour window - so a free ride home, this market/neighbourhood is a must for the cost conscious, shopper, also worth visiting just for the atmosphere.

Home of Sacre Coeur and cabarets
Dec. 2019
This arrondissement is best known for the Montmartre hill on top of which is the fab Sacre Couer Basilica. Around it worth exploring are the small winding streets around the Basilica and the artist's sq of Tertre.
Down the hill you enter the entertainment zone around Pigalle with famous Moulin Rouge and many sex stores as well a museum.

Montmartre
Oct. 2019 • Couples
Although most famous for Montmartre and Moulin Rouge, this is quite a remarkable and unique area with much more to offer.

Montmartre and a special Indian restauramt
Nov. 2019
We were in this section area twice- once to visit Montmartre and to see that church on the top and the artists quarters, and our second time to visit a small earthy and outstanding indian restaurant- Darjeeling: simply outstanding food from a quite quiet simple and unassuming place on a side street of a working class neighborhood.

Mrs HarryD did not enjoy being in these working class less affluent and immigrant neighborhoods- she stayed adjacent and next to me and grabbed and firmly held my forearm during all of our walkings and explorations

Streets below Sacred Heart
Sep. 2019
The narrow streets below the church shining in white over all Paris are full of shops selling cheap souvenirs made in China, yet the Fragonard perfume brand has an elegant outlet offering also colourful textiles. The fabric stores like legendary Marchee Saint-Pierre have been here for decades, unfortunately they are now concentrating mainly on polyester, gone are the days of fashion house stocks of wool, silk, cotton and linen. On this visit I did my fabric shopping at all time favourite Toto, established in 1961, which has shops all over Paris and France. The boulevard Rochechouart below the hill used to be a bargain shopping area full of gorgeously dressed African ladies, now it is rather depressing and turns really dangerous at Barbes with addicts loitering on the streets.

Montmartre Village
Oct. 2019
We once lived in the district and enjoyed all it had to offer: Lots of history, art, food and drink and plenty of spectacular views. Lots of winding streets to explore with some gorgeous apartment buildings and houses. We always return. It has a village atmosphere.

Montmartre & More
Sep. 2018 • Business
The 18th Arrondissement contains Montmartre which is home of Basilque Sacre Coeur and the only remaining vineyard in Paris. Much of the area is geared toward tourism, but also contains some hidden gems which are not. One just has to be prepared to walk up and down the hills. These include some beautiful blocks with wonderful homes. From Sacre Coeur one has a great view of Paris if the weather and atmospheric conditions are good. It is also home to the "Funicular" in Paris.

The 18th Arrondissement is also home to "Pigalle" which borders the 9th Arrondissement which has a long history for its sex shops. The Moulin Rouge is located in the arrondissement and has been immortalized by Toulouse-Lautrec.

The 18th Arrondissement is worth a visit. Some spectacular picture opportunities during the evening and dusk Sacre-Coeur and Moulin Rouge. In October the butte of Montmartre has a wine harvest festival that is really great fun to see. One should exercise caution from scammers and pickpockets. If walking around Pigalle at night one needs to be careful of people trying to get you to visit the sex shows.

Montmartre
May 2018 • Couples
This is the district that contains the Montmartre area, one of Paris' most unique and picturesque districts. We once had an apartment here and loved our time here due to the great restaurants and cafes plus unique architecture. Lots of hill climbing but it's worth it for the atmosphere.
