It's a nice street full of pretty shops at the very beginning selling various staff, then becoming more quiet while climbing up to the basilica. Some famous artists used to live here some time ago. Nice alternative to reach Sacre Coeur without crowds.

Amongst other things in Rue Lepic you will find the Cafe dse Deux Moulins of Amelie fame. Further up the road, if you look hard, you will find a plaque on the wall of the house where Vincent Van Gogh lived with his brother Theo.

Having gone up the steps to Sacre-Coeur, this was our route down from Montmartre, to the Cemetery. It's an interesting little street at the top end, with windmills and lots of lovely buildings to look at.

This serpentine street leads to the beautiful church of Sacred heart through charming stores, traditional boulangeries and bistros. It is rising so be prepared, but it will compensate your effort. At a point you will also find "le mulin de la galette", one of the last remaining historical windmills in Montmartre.

This is an old, charming street that leads to the hill of Montmartre, where lived or worked many historical persons and where you can see a lot of interesting places. Due to its distinctive look and feel, it was often inspiration for artists and it is the closest experience of Paris it once was, that you can have today. There... More

Had to see the Moulin de la Galette and 54 rue Lepic (Van Gogh) apartment. Scenic walk, but it is very steep. Hard for someone not fit. If you've got knee problems, forget it.

I like this neighborhood.. Great place to spend an evening climbing the hill to Sacre Couer, and maybe eating in one of the tourist trap restaurants. Not a must do by any stretch of the imagination, but another fun neighborhood in Paris.

This little road brings you to a host of the better restaurants; there's a fair amount of tourist traps, but also a huge number of restaurants where the French themselves will eat, and eat late. Then afterwards, walking along here can bring you to several late night stops for wine or a crepe. Really delightful - and by far the... More

This area of Paris, near Sacre Coeur, is always charming. You can wander through the hundreds of small streets and find little treasures that you will remember forever. Here in the area of the Moulin de la Galette you can find great restaurants, boulangeries and bars, where you can have a sumptuous meal or simply a cafe and pastry, really... More

This street has all the charm of Paris located in one delightful locale. Many small bars, bakeries, and grocers adorn the lower levels, while the upper levels that lead to Sacre-Coeur are lined with pre 1900 multi story apartments. A delight to visit.

Staying in Montmartre

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
