    Although there are some important things to see and the Sacré-Coeur Basilica is among the most beautiful and important, I'm not really a fan of this district which has a large number of small restaurants but I don't like that much; Pigalle with his Moulin Rouge and other local sex-is very dangerous at night is also fairly lapsed and walk about, Montmartre with its artists is now almost a memory, restaurants are increasingly the tourist and then as neighborhood don't find more interesting as before, except for the splendid Basilica, as stated above.

    Located north of Paris, this district is full of things to see in its multiple neighborhoods like "La Chapelle", "La Goutte d'Or", "Pigalle", "La Butte de Montmartre", the "sacred heart with his place du Tertre", the "cemetery of Montmartre", "great career", "Moulin Rouge," Church "Our Lady of Clignancourt" on-site Joffrin which is opposite the Town Hall of the 18th arrondissement , building where you can admire the statues and bas-reliefs. A very nice ride to feet for the courageous!...

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
