  • Montmartre Sacré Coeur and place du Tertre are tourist highlights in Paris, that attract loads of tourists. The square itself presents itself as it did during our first visit 40 years ago still same. Painter of all shapes and sizes, exhibiting their pictures un want to sell. A place full of color and life, of course include also the tourists. You should schedule a visit in connection with the nearby Sacre Coeur.

  • Although not tops on most tourist's places to visit, your Paris experience will be richer for it if you do journey to this artists' colony. Paintings and their creators line the plaza, inviting your close examination and interaction with the painters and their craft. There is genuine history here, including Picasso and others who graced this place with their works a generation ago. Of course, as is true with all of the tourist spots, beware of gypsies looking to part you from your valuables. Highly recommended.
  • Happening streets that merge at this park. Lots of restaurants, gift shops (but most are the same thing at each one) , coffee shops , street music and right next to the sacred church. I would love to get a hotel in this area and walk around some more.
  • Lively & vibrant place with great views & a nice atmosphere. Plenty of choice for real parisian food. A little pricy but worth the visit. Busy until late hours...great for tourists.
  • Very live place full of crowds of tourists. The place is busy with many cafes and restaurants. It also features artists who paint pictures for those interested visitors.
  • The place is very well known to the local artists. You can have yourself sketched in about 20 minutes and in any way you like. The artist here are exceptional!

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.
