Known as the center of a flourishing artist community from 1907 to 1914, Montmartre now has a thriving nightlife. While shopping in the boutiques in this lively historic area, you'll still see reminders of the artists who lived and worked here, including Picasso, van Gogh, Dali, Duchamp, and Monet. You'll recognize the neighborhood when you see the white-domed Basilica of the Sacré Coeur rising from the hill's summit. The red-light district just downhill to the southwest has a wide variety of stores and concert venues featuring rock music and experimental contemporary music.

  • Montmartre is a beautiful area of Paris and there is so much to see and explore and so many restaurants to try. Sacre-Coeur Basilica is beautiful but almost always extremely crowded. I love going...

  • A wonderful area to spend a day wandering. This is definitely a must-see in Paris, in my humble opinion.

  • Spent my morning in Montmarte - a neighbourhood mainly filled with cafe, shops and tourist. Was enjoyable as I walked through the streets, taking photos and enjoying the view. Stumbled across white-domed Basilica, and right outside were many realistic portrait artist offering their service. Sadly, I chose one who did a horrible job at 25euros…(refer to image for then lols) terrible experience on that part.
  • Beautiful part of Paris, with lots of cafes and restaurants. Lovely to wonder around and explore. With lots to do and see in the area we will definitely go back to explore. Its also worth getting g off the main boulevard and exploring the side streets more locals and less tourists.
