Montmartre, Paris
(4.3/5 based on 11,000+ reviews on the web)
Known as the center of a flourishing artist community from 1907 to 1914, Montmartre now has a thriving nightlife. While shopping in the boutiques in this lively historic area, you'll still see reminders of the artists who lived and worked here, including Picasso, van Gogh, Dali, Duchamp, and Monet. You'll recognize the neighborhood when you see the white-domed Basilica of the Sacré Coeur rising from the hill's summit. The red-light district just downhill to the southwest has a wide variety of stores and concert venues featuring rock music and experimental contemporary music. Use our Paris itinerary builder to add Montmartre and other attractions to your Paris vacation plans.

  • If you want to see Paris from a high place, if you want to visit a beautiful church and a lot if you want to see night time together before the painter to visit.

  • Went through this neighborhood with a greating Parisian, and earned the penalty each minute last with him. I told the story of the neighborhood, of its artists, of their vineyards, all. Here is the sacred heart, and also confectionery where Amelie was filmed. For all tastes.

  • One of the most famous churches and evocative of Paris, which is inserted in a bad neighborhood. At the foot of the stairs, on both sides, beware of groups of Negroes who, punctually, stop people putting their hands on him (shake your wrist trying to flog wristbands). Say no more and more become threatening. All in a total lack of control. Going up the stairs, you may stumble upon fake deaf mute groups they want you to sign some forms. In reality are nothing more than Gypsies who definitely good intentions don't have. Oh, and of course, feel them and other insults that mute! Basically, I recommend having a picture from below and walk away. Also because the visibility of the Church is limited by the plants and the buildings, and then not even seen much. What a disappointment!
