A separate town until 1859, Montmartre has lost none of its village character and has even still got some vines. 15 minutes walk away, the hill offers one of the most beautiful panoramas of Paris from the Sacré Coeur. If the more courageous take the stairs to the basilica, others prefer to enjoy the view from the funicular which leaves from Place Saint Pierre.
From the 19th century onwards, Toulouse Lautrec, Van Gogh and Picasso went there and found inspiration. The myth of Bohemian Paris was born. Nowadays, portrait painters perpetuate the artistic vibes of these streets and the Espace Dalí exhibits more than 300 works by the painter.
After a morning sightseeing, it’s time to picnic in the quiet of a square or admiring the Eiffel Tower and the roofs of Paris from the gardens of the Sacré Coeur. At the foot of the hill, nights in the Moulin Rouge have made the whole world dream since 1889.
