Located in the 18th Arrondissement, this elevated rural neighborhood on the outskirts of the city has a collection of upscale shops and cafés and still exudes hints of old village charm.

The basilica of Sacre Coeur was in Montmartre. Other than that the streets were pretty nice. There were souvenir shops everywhere.

We came for dinner and the food was great. Our waiter spoke French, English, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish, Germain and Romanian fluently, what a treat! We walked the streets after dark and the views and ambience were really great. I wish we'd had more time to visit again during the daylight, but that's another reason to visit again.

We stayed here and also spent a lot of time in the area. Away from the souvenir shops around the Sacre-Coeur, it has lost none of its energy and charm and you can spend hours browsing the shops or people-watching from boulevard cafes (look for the ones which have heated terraces. Breakfast here is a delight, but stick with the... More

If it was possible to pick a 'best bit' of Paris this would probably be it! I didn't take the usual Funicular Route to the top but approached from the other aspect via stepped cobbled pavements - steep maybe but so, so worth it as I would have missed the bronze statue of a running man emerging from the wall...

We come for the art, had dinner and a few glasses of wine at a sidewalk cafe and watched Paris unfold in front of us. Local artist had drawn my daughter the last time I was there. This time we purchased other works. Stayed into the evening, made our way into shopping area, past moulin rouge, then to the Metro... More

Some complain about the riffraff and the tourist trap on Montmartre but I still see the beauty in it. Its a lot of fun, even the touristy souvenir shops and caricature artists. But beyond that, the streets are full of such romance and transport you easily to a century earlier. Great place to stroll, stop in a cafe, look at... More

Get off the metro at Anvers and walk up the side street where you exit, it's lined with shops and you can see the Sacre Couer in the distance, if you don't want to climb the steps you can use a metro ticket to be taken up by the funicular. Once you've taken in the church you can walk the... More

Arty district full of character and nice restaurants although be selective as value is quite variable. The views from Sacre Couer are wonderful in early evening.

I never miss Montmartre (and Sacre Coeur) when visiting Paris because I never get tired of it. The view from the steps in front of Sacre Coeur is superb--the city entire city lies at your feet as this is the highest point in the Paris. Take a stroll up the narrow cobblestone streets. Check out the "gold man" statue --... 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.
