Top 5 things to do in Paris' Montmartre

The Paris neighborhood of Montmartre is famous for its bohemian flair, and many of its cultural offerings shape the city. It's a great place to relax and take in some art - what are some places you shouldn't miss?

Sacre Coeur

Paris' most famous basilica was completed in 1914 and shines like a beacon. After you've climbed its white steps, it will give you a breathtaking view across the city!

Dali Museum

This collection of sculptures and paintings is the only permanent Dali exhibition in France. It's really popular though, so get your skip-the-line ticket!

Moulin Rouge

Not just a movie, Moulin Rouge is a legendary place you can visit - why not book dinner for two with a raunchy show there?

Wall of Love

Visit the Wall of Love in the Jehan Rictus garden in the world's most romantic city! Made of molten lava, it's covered with the phrase "I love you" in over 300 different languages.

St. Martin Canal

The street life along this canal summarizes the Parisian lifestyle - leisurely strolls and afternoons spent sitting outside at cafés, sampling world-class food.

Montmartre: Our Tips

Keep an eye on your belongings

Unfortunately, Paris' status as a world-class tourist city means it's also rife with pickpockets. Keep valuables stashed away deep inside a bag - especially on the metro - and don't flash them around at night.

Speak the lingo

While nobody's expecting you to master French before you arrive, learning some basic words here and there will get you places and cause locals to look at you favorably!

Make reservations

If you're keen to dine at a certain restaurant, reserve in advance to avoid disappointment - and remember that the French tend to eat dinner a bit later than Americans, around 7:00PM.

Skip the lines

You don't want to spend your vacation standing around, do you? If you have your sights set on one or two major museums, score yourself a skip-the-line ticket for priority entry.

A lot of insight into the scenery of Montmartre

Lots of interesting facts told in a light-hearted way, I recommend it

Kit commentary about Montmarte was informative with a little dash of humor. Although there are a few steep climbs, I still recommend this tour. After all Montmarte is hilly and walking really is the best way to see it.

Montmartre came to life through Esteban's stories - highly recommend

We spent a lovely evening wandering through the streets of Montmartre with Esteban. His stories brought the history of the neighbourhood to life for us and we learned lots. Definitely recommend one of these tours

Very informative and enjoyable; just a few too many puns from Onno!

Onno gave us great tour up streets I would normally not have gone myself and had interesting stories to tell us about the various points of interest: the house where Van Gogh lived for two years with his brother, the only vineyard within Paris, the two famous windmills (other than Moulin Rouge), the little cabaret venue where Picasso and Renoir would meet and, of course, Sacre Coeur and the wonderful view of Paris from there. The weather was excellent and fortunately the group was not too big so we were able to move on quite speedily without having to hang around waiting for people. All most enjoyable and informative; well worth doing, especially with a guide like Onno.

quirky & full of trivia delivered in a fun way for all

Thank you "Alex" - what a star of this tour and the detail you are so passionate about, this for us was one of our highlights of the area. Whilst the group was a little big, if you were interested enough you could keep pace; just be mindful there are some hills to climb. A tour we can recommend for those interested in detail of Montmartre... One note though - we only found the guide for check in by accident as she only had a "red umbrella" on a sunny hot day and was not wearing the noted "red t-shirt". When I asked, "Camilla" said she had not been given a red t shirt as yet.
