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

    1. 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!

  • 2. Dali Museum

    This collection of sculptures and paintings is the only permanent Dali exhibition in France. It's really popular though, so book your tickets in advance.

  • Moulin Rouge

    3. 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

    4. 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

    5. 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.

Planning Your Visit

  • 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 ticket 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, buy your tickets in advance to skip the ticket lines.

The boat tour was so much fun, if not incredibly cheesy. It was a great way to see Paris at night and also feel perfectly safe. I was very excited to see the show, because Moulin Rouge is one of my favorite movies. It was a super entertaining experience and I am very glad I did it. However, Though I'm not sure what I was expecting, I was surprised. Some of the costumes were ridiculous full body suits with just the boobs cut out. But hey, it was a good show.

So fun!! Our driver/guide Julien was funny, knowledgeable as well as professional. Somewhat chilly day, but Julien had nice blankets and even an extra coat if we needed. My teenager loved it... thought she would be embarrassed, but instead had a great time. Wonderful way to discover Paris! Thank you Julien we will definitely be booking again for a different area of Paris.

This is a really nice way to see areas that would may not stumble across if you walked around yourself. The story was cute as a couple and we got some lovely pictures. We stopped for a drink on the way and felt no pressure to finish the quest, it was just a bit of fun. My partner enjoyed it as an early birthday gift during our trip.

What a great way to spend a day exploring Paris. Using Questo you get to discover places you may not know about and you get to learn some history too. Highly recommended

Took the evening tour. Vincent was an guide and driver. So thrilled that I experienced this at night. Couldn’t wipe the smile off my face!!
