Trip Planner:   Europe  /  France  /  Ile-de-France  /  Paris  /  Montmartre
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.

    I did the walking tour of SANDEMANs and it seems to me necessary to do a guided tour to make someone tell you the wonders of this neighborhood, also without a guide it is divine but with guide of leverages most every corner has a history and is interesting and can be appreciated more if you know how to.

    When low of Sacré Coeur, you found with artists in which you can you do a portrait, are all great, friendly and very good portrait, you can you get ice cream, take a beer, or simply walk and see a bit of Paris. Highly recommended.

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.
