  • Heart of Paris, typically french. Beautiful views, nice restaurants, artists... Tourists, you will be satisfied !
  • Personally my favorite area Paris to visit. I love art and I love seeing artist work live. Great little cafés to sit down and people watch. Great area to explore local artist shops and museums. Around the corner is The Salvador Dali museum, definitely worth the visit. Beautiful views great things to see in art and souvenir shops. Definitely a place you should stop by and see while you’re in Paris
  • Lovely place in the Montmartre neighbourhood in Paris, maybe the most bohemian one I’ve seen. Strolling on the crowded streets gave me a pleasing, comforting feeling like I could be there forever. There is a market, lots of street artists eager to sketch your portrait, many souvenir shops and a handful of restaurants, some having live piano music. Not bad at all. It looks like the perfect place for getting to know what Paris is really like, even though there are many many tourists there. I’d say it’s a must see when visiting Paris.
  • Covered square - a perfect spot to take shelter from the rain for a few minutes. Lots of artists here with there paintings around the perimeter of the square.
  • Very cute square in Montmatre dotted with numerous very talented artists. Great to have a wander around and people watch. Lots of bars/restaurants to rest your feet too. Well worth a visit when in Paris!
