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

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.

Our insider 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.

What people are saying about Montmartre

Breathtaking experience, spectacular ride across Paris

Caroline, the manager at "Retro Tour" was very helpful and supported to set the ride to a sunny day - basis of 'joyride' on motorbike. Christophe was punctually waiting for us on Concorde at gate to Tuilleries garden. The motorbike was great, a 750 ccm beast, with comfy sidecar, suitable even for non-experienced people. Christophe asked, whether we prefer speedy ride, we choose soft version, it was impressing even so. The route is well elaborated, concentrating on known places and 40 minute is good enough. During the ride is difficult to give long explanations - Christophe was ready to do it - best to enjoy the views of Paris, the breeze, the speed!

Nice time. A time travel in the historical context!

The guide was nice and had experience. Could have taken a little longer in the historical/interesting places to take pictures. This is the only item that I think needs to be improved - especially in the narrow and steep streets of Montmartre, wich means we will not go back to the photos.

Best gustatory and educational value in Paris

Eric our guide was amazing in his knowledge and his fun demeanor. Every detail of the three hour tour was as packed w information about food and Monmarte as our bellies were fed with the absolute best French pastries (sweet and savory). The last hour is a relaxed sit down lunch with scrumptious wine cheese and charcuterie. The tour ended at Sacre Couer with a breathtaking view of the cathedral and Paris. Don’t miss it but do request Eric.

Great way to get to see Paris and get to main attractions.

Easy to use. We had an issue with bus reading digital tickets but bus took us to main stop where it was quickly resolved. Great way to get your bearings and see parts of the city between the main attractions. Audio tour was interesting, and informative. Traffic at Arc de Triumph was something to see from the top deck.

A very pleasant & interesting experience...

A very pleasant, interesting & informative experience walking through quite an unexpected village type of place in the city. A nice town square, a cute little vineyard of yesteryear & a fabulous church.
