Not the first time that we visited Monmartre, but always a pleasure. The many street artists, restaurants and ofcourse the very impressive Sacre Coeur are well worth visiting and also the small Christmas market.
Don't miss it.
This has always been my favorite area of Paris. I was having some hip pain so we took the funicular up the butte at Sacre Couer and walked around the area from there. It is so quaint with small restaurants and gift shops everywhere, but...More
A weekend trip to Paris with a shopping Day at Champs Elysee was the plan. Met by a "not to friendly" street we chose Montmartre as our base for the weekend. Plenty of good shops, a wide range of very nice restaurants and a lot...More
This part of Paris is not something you associate Paris tourism with. Mommarte has a really different feel to it. Its more relaxed than the rest of Paris. We stay in Momarte for 2 days and loved exploring it.
Most of the artists there do spectacular works and worth buying. My wife and still have our large oil painting hanging in our living room, that we bought there in 1980. You can do some negotiating with the artists within reason. Watch out for the...More
This place is a must go in Paris. Interesting art/artists, good cafe's and a great atmosphere. I have been here several times in different seasons and always ended up buying something. Visited several restaurants and cafes and never been dissapointed. Make sure to walk around...More
To see this church of Sacre Coeur you must make the effort and climb the stairs. As you climb turn around occasionally and take in the breathtaking views of Paris - it is worth every step. For those who don't want to take the stairs...More
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.

It depends on where you are going from. It's not a big climb up the steps from and you can always stop for a rest and admire the view. It comes out at the entrance to Sacre Coeur, so probably right where you want to... More

Alternatively, go to Blanche and take the small train up. As you come up the metro steps, stay on the central reservation between the dual carriage ways in both directions and cross over the small turning lane straight ahead. The train stop will be on your right almost opposite The Moulin Rouge.
