Montmartre (Paris, France) Reviews
Newest Review: ... little shops and, particularly at Christmas, you will find lots of street sellers. Then you can either catch the Furnicular up to the Sacre Couer or, if you're feeling energetic, there is a set of Steps that goes the same way as the Furnicular - But don't attempt that unless you are really fit!! When you get to the steps of the Sacre Couer you will be stunned by it's beauty - I would say that you shouldn't fall for the sellers outside the Church but go inside (if you can catch a Service, it's wonderful, even if you don't speak French!!). I know it's very touristy but I fully recommend getting your Picture drawn by one of the Sketch A... more

Montmarte is one of my Favourite Places in Paris and I wouldn't go to Paris and not go there for at least a few hours. I found that the best way to get there (and the most interesting!) is to get the Metro to Pigalle.

Montmartre To the north of Paris this area of the city is artistically Parisian with just the right amount of tourist thrown in! Montmartre is quite steep and has a lot of steps to climb to get to and from it. You can either walk up the steps in front of the Sacre-Coeur and go across, walk up the many sets of steps going up and through Montmartre or take the 'Funiculaire de Montmartre' which is basically a short cable car ride but it gets you to the top of the hill easily. During our time in Paris we went to Montmartre twice it was that good. The first day we walked from our hotel and walked up the steps in front of Sacre-Coeur (taking ... Read the complete review
