Where : Montmartre, Paris
Montmartre is a “Must” while you are in Paris! This district is full of history, on a hill located in Paris’s 18th arrondissement. The main attraction is beautiful Basilica of the Sacré-Coeur which is located at the very top of the hill. There are lots of cafes and restaurants around, the cute 'Wall of Love' or 'Mur des je t'aimes' in French. The streets are full of artists attempting to sell their drawings and caricatures.
- Visit the Musée d’Art Naif Max Fourny in the square
- Many notable artists lived and worked in Montmartre during the “Belle époque” (1872 and 1914). Back in the day, the rents were low and the atmosphere congenital. Big names like, Vincent Van Gogh worked in Montmartre and drew some of their inspiration from the area.
You also be able to get a dinner/show or just pass through the famous cabaret “Moulin Rouge”. Montmartre was an inspiration for lots of movies too. Our budget didn’t allow us to get inside, it must be quite an experience !
Montmartre is easily accessible by metro and Paris Google Maps friendly (which is how we got around).
