  • This place is located in the 18th arrondissement of Paris, on the Hill of Montmartre. There are a lot of artists who can draw your portrait in about 20 minutes! It is little expensive, but the paint squeezed a beautiful memory of your visit. I like the Place du Tertre.

  • you can enjoy a walk to place du tertre from the scare coeur, and stay for a cup of coffee watching painters n people getting painted!  more »
  • This site is one of the most charming of Paris and today you can find some street artists who make or sell souvenir paintings. Trade around is quite refined and sometimes you can still find an accordion player with its nostalgic songs that always resemble Paris.

  • 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.
