Historically Monmartre is the most radical neighborhood in the most revolutionary city in Europe. After the liquidation of the Paris Commune in 1871 thousands were shot. Sacre Coeur was built here in the aftermath as a symbol of conservative triumph. Today this hilly district is known for its nightlife.

Montmartre is a lovely neighborhood of Paris in the 18th arrondissement. Most tourist visit it to see Sacre-Coeur, though the neighborhood is also famous for being the home to many painters like Picasso and Salvador Dali

Great place to walk around, enjoy the view, check out the artists on the main plaza and sit down at a cafe.

Montmartre is the old bohemian, artsy neighborhood. Based on it's role in many films, this is the Paris you might be anticipating if it's you first visit. Set on the hill, overlooking the city, it's still probably Paris at its most romantic. The neighborhood is residential, but in certain areas (near Sacre Cour) it is absolutely bulging with tourists. Take a long walk around and enjoy the ambiance of the quieter streets.

It depends on where you go, but this hill is the most culturally-packed place in the whole city. A great angle of the towering Sacre Couer, a steep hike (or cable car ride), great walking paths, shops, food, and narrow cobblestone streets interspersed with skateboarding teenagers, gawking tourists, kissing lovers, and ice-cream-licking kids. The top of the hill offers a gorgeous panorama of the city, but BEWARE the con artists - they are extremely persistent and will sucker in even mediocre tourists. Give a firm NO, then flat-out ignore them at all costs.

The section of Paris I love the most! It is colorful and the people lively!
The two main reasons to come to Montmartre are The Moulin Rouge and Sacre-Coeur Basilica.
Underneath the Basilica is the artists quarter, where the beret's are creating more beautiful pictures of Paris in all of it's glory.

Montmarte was definitely my favorite part of Paris. It's combination of seedy and classic was an incredible mix that was right up my alley. The old architecture and artsy shops at the top of the hill were lovely.

I really enjoyed my time in Montmartre. I rented an apartment near here, and it was a very good decision after all. The neighbourhood is filled with interesting facts and attractions. The view of the city from the hill is amazing. One of the main sights in Paris, Basilica of the Sacré Cœur, is standing tall on the top of the hill. There's a Vineyard in the Rue Saint-Vincent, close to Moulin Rouge. Also, this area is famous for the home of the artists: Salvador Dalí, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso and Vincent van Gogh to name a few.

One of my favorite neighborhoods -- especially once you get away from the Sacre Coeur. Yes, she has a seedy side but there is a gritty charm and diversity here that I just love.

Montmartre is a hill in the north of Paris, France. It is 130 metres high and gives its name to the surrounding district. Montmartre is primarily known for the white-domed Basilica of the Sacré Cœur on its summit. Many artists had studios or worked around the community of Montmartre such as Salvador Dalí, Amedeo Modigliani, Claude Monet, Piet Mondrian, Pablo Picasso and Vincent van Gogh.
