  • The place du Tertre rest somewhere exotic and so Parisian! take your time to walk in the middle of the painters and a coffee on the palce!

  • Piazza has always known to be very engaging territory of artists and painters. Very typical, although it lost that authenticity that definitely had many years ago. Always too full of tourists, also because it is next to the Sacre Coeur, is still characteristic with many bars and restaurants. And even with so many who try to make a portrait. After so many stairs from the Abbesses Metro is nice face appear suddenly. Interesting surroundings.

  • We're looking for the square to make a self-portrait that we saw on the internet, the arts exhibition is beautiful, has a lot of good stuff. We found a gentleman who made our picture, however, was not very similar. As we had another appointment soon, as soon as we left, we haven't had much option to find another artist. Tip: If you have intention to do a portrait, arrive before and try to analyze some already doing ... so you will have a sense of how your will. We also get a discount for two pictures.

  • 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!
