Montmartre area

montmartre, paris. (Open Map)


A favorite neighborhood

Clustered on Paris's tallest hill around the sugary white Sacré Coeur, Montmartre is famous for its cabarets (Moulin Rouge, Le Chat noir, Lapin Agile) and bistros, and its narrow streets and stairways. The neighborhood still has the charm of a provincial village, and unlike the more touristy spots in Paris, Montmartre is quiet, serene, with picturesque cottages, bohemian bars and quirky shops and galleries. Down the hill, Place Pigalle is a young trendy hangout.
