Visit the Butte Montmartre district

Montmartre is one of the emblems of Paris, and you could stroll for hours in this district-village, discovering the small cobbled streets and famous monuments. Here is a short itinerary to discover the Butte Montmartre.

The Saint-Pierre market

Not far from the very cosmopolitan district of Barbès, and 10 minutes by public transport from the Cadet residence, the Saint-Pierre market is the largest fabric market in the capital. Fashion and sewing enthusiasts will love this temple of veiling and fabric of all colors.

Halle Saint-Pierre

Opposite the Saint-Pierre market, you will notice the beauty of the buildings in the halle Saint-Pierre. This former covered market is now an exhibition space that showcases singular art and art brut.

The Montmartre funicular and Square Louise Michel

Behind the Halle Saint-Pierre, Square Louise Michel offers a breathtaking view of the Sacré-Coeur. You then have the choice of climbing to the top of the Montmartre hill by climbing the staircase with no less than 222 steps, or taking the Montmartre funicular to Square Nadar.

The Basilica of the Sacred Heart

One of the most visited places in Paris, the Basilica of the Sacred Heart is a unique place of worship. The 83-meter-high monument imposes itself with its white color, its 5 domes, its two-storey porch and its campanile. Inside, we discover the largest mosaic fresco in France and a crypt, while the dome offers a breathtaking view of Paris.

Many tourists like to stop for a few moments on the forecourt of the basilica, at the top of the Montmartre hill, to admire the view of the capital.

Place du Tertre

A stone’s throw from the square in front of the basilica, the famous Place du Tertre has made Montmartre famous. A place of frequentation for artists of all kinds, this public square has brought together portraitists and painters, but also small typical restaurants, for more than 2 centuries already.

The Montmartre museum

Housed in the oldest house in the district, the Montmartre museum has long been the studio of many illustrious artists (Renoir, Dufy, Utrillo, etc.). Today, the museum relates the artistic history of the district.

The Maison Rose and the Lapin Agile

An integral part of the history of Montmartre, the Lapin Agile and the Maison Rose were once high places for festive gatherings of local artists. Paul Verlaine, Modigliani, Picasso, Apollinaire and even Maupassant met regularly in the oldest cabaret in Paris, the Lapin Agile. As for the Maison Rose restaurant, it was more Albert Camus or Suzanne Valadon who came to eat.

These two historic places in the district are still in operation, and recognizable among all by their colorful facades.

Le Clos Montmartre

Did you know that Montmartre was a wine-growing area? Discover this small Parisian vineyard, which produces a few bottles of wine every year, which are always very popular. A festival is also organized every October, the Vendanges de Montmartre, to celebrate the harvest.

The Montmartre cemetery

Among the 20,000 graves in the Montmartre cemetery, we discover great names in the history of France, who recall the artistic and cultural effervescence that the district has always known. We then find the tombs of Edgar Degas, Hector Berlioz, Stendhal, Alfred de Vigny, Sacha Guitry… But we especially notice the sumptuous tomb of Dalida.

Place des Abbesses and the Je t’aime

Let’s end this journey with the must-see of Montmartre, Place des Abbesses. Here, Parisian life takes on its full meaning, and we find the typical atmosphere of café terraces.
