  • Very nice place with a true artists but when there are a lot of world it becomes complicated to walk quietly and stop admire their work but it's still the place to be in Paris

  • We strolled around in the spring sun. But it felt a little too touristy and with cheap easy art. Didn't like any of the paintings.

  • Make sure to go during the day time- tons of Parisian artists painting away and putting their stuff up for sale. Got one myself. Loved it.  more »

  • We finally made it to here one evening, on our most recent trip to Paris to see the artists at work. The restaurants felt very touristy - with people on the street trying to convince you to eat at their establishment (usually if someone has to convince you, run!), but watching the artists at work, and listening to live music (cellos, oboes, quartets) throughout the square and around the corner was a treat. I can't compare this to the past, and we didn't find it too overrun with tourists while we were there, but I'm sure it changes with day of the week and time of day. I found the entire area charming and a visual treat, and would highly recommend it. Some very talented artists at work here.
  • Full of artists offering to paint a portrait of you in a quintessentially French cobbled square. Restaurants seemed very expensive. Try to avoid the roaming artists as they can be more annoying than the ones with a table set up in the square itself.
  • A great place to stop at the top of the hill. And have a long lunch. Artists in the square are interesting.
  • Fête du vin is a really cool event taking place here yearly. It is really pleasant to drink a good wine with this beautiful landscape
  • World famous artists' square in Montmartre. Not to be missed!
