  • Dozens of artists, painters are concentrated in this square located in the heart of Montmartre and make you portrait in a few minutes. It is really very nice and always cheerful. A typical Parisian place that you should not miss!!!

  • It is certain that the visit of the sacred heart of Montmartre is more than highly recommended. However, many tourists who do not miss to visit throughout the year this typical Parisian they travel around with great pleasure, never fail to place du tertre, particularly when the weather is here. Among the many different attractions, some painters and other cartoonists deserve to be a watchful eye.

  • Lovely square, as Paris we see in movies. Full of artists, on arrival a lady singing La vie en rose, which moved us much. It is surrounded by restaurants and shops nearby. I loved

  • 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!
