North of the city centre on your map of Paris but Montmartre has Sacre Coeur so is special.
Sacre Coeur, Moulin Rouge, Le Moulin de la Galette, Vigne du Clos Montmartre, Montmartre funicular, Montmartre Cemetery, rue Lepic, Abbesses, Place du Tertre
Ivy clad and brightly coloured, window shuttered houses, The Moulin Rouge, Cafe des Deux Moulins (you know the film Amélie), Le Moulin de la Galette (with Montmartre’s two surviving windmills), the carousel at Abbesses metro, Vigne du Clos Montmartre (yes, a real working vineyard on the hillside behind Sacre Coeur) – all hallmarks of what this famous and yet funky neighbourhood has to offer.
Montmartre can be as crowded or as quiet as you want – the funicular to the Basilica is a good example of the former and the legendary Montmartre Cemetery, the best example of the latter! It is always picturesque, whether throught the artists on Place du Tertre or the shopkeepers on rue Lepic.

Place du Tertre
Overwhelming impression of being so close to Sacre Coeur…
… and yet other attractions like the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame are no more than 20 minutes away by metro. It is easy to get to the summit via the funicular where you can walk the lovely streets of Montmartre and in less than 20 minutes you can walk from Gare Du Nord so making the location convenient for anyone arriving by Eurostar or RER from Charles De Gaulle airport.
Stephen and Susan Birch, Manchester, September 2013 | stayed in Rue Livingstone in Montmartre
Montmartre is built on a hill!
which is why there is a train and a funicular!
The village of Abbesses and Rue Lepic
The "I love you" wall at Place des Abbesses
Julia & Julia and My Confiserie
- in all its faded elegance, the confiserie on rue Caulaincourt that featured in two of Meryl Streep's scenes
Cafe des 2 Moulins
Cafe des 2 Moulins (windmills) was central to the film Amelie!
Le Moulin de la Galette
With Le Moulin Rouge, one of just the two windmills in Montmartre today
- a great market street on the north / back side of Butte de Montmartre.
steps are just part and parcel of living on the Butte!
