MONTMARTRE

Place du Tertre - Montmartre

Montmartre is the most popular area to visit by tourists. This hillside village was annexed to Paris in the 19th century and since then it was a popular place to go on weekends to breathe fresh air, drink, and dance at the guinguettes.

Because living in Montmartre was cheap, the area was home to many artists who lived a bohemian life of working and night entertainment in the cabarets.

Our articles will take you to the old Montmartre, with the must-do sights but also to our favorite spots to play, eat, and sleep.
