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.

O.M.G.!!!! I give this tour five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Our guide Nicolas took us on an amazing stroll through Montmatre, sharing the most amazing anecdotes and stories which made this experience such a memorable one. This part of the city is so different from the streets of down town. Here people hung out in the streets, in the parks and at the restaurants. It was so quiet and green. Simply lovely! And the different food, wine, chocolates and pastries we got to try. A memory for life!!!! I give my warmest recommendations for this tour. Make sure you don’t miss out on this fantastic experiences.

Riding a sidecar in and around Paris was A Plus. Navigation through traffic was easy therefore we were able to see so many things. The ll’Arc de Triomphe was beautiful lit up at night. So many romantic plazas, beautiful buildings and a bottle of champagne to top it off. The French do love ve their champagne. The driver was very enthusiastic which help blend with the side car experience. Really great.

This was a fabulous tour. Nicolas was our guide. It was a group of 5. We visited only the best places for chocolates, croissants, cream puffs, macarons, pastries and ended with sitting down for wine, cheese, meats and breads. We walked all through Montmartre, up to Sacre-Couer and back. We visited all the places that are probably on your list.
