Travel Tips for visiting Montmartre

If you're staying in Paris, make a stop in Montmartre, the capital's must-see district!



What better place to discover Paris from its sacred heart than the Montmartre district? It is one of the many Parisian districts, now forming a large part of the 18th arrondissement of the capital. Known for its basilica and the view it offers over the city, a visit to Montmartre is a must. Indeed, life there is more flowery, and more joyful, through its steep streets, its famous staircases, and its many theatres.
To visit Montmartre is also to immerse yourself in an atmosphere and a bohemian way of life that you will not find anywhere else... Montmartre, with its small village feel. If its "authentic" airs are sometimes a little artificial, it remains a land of enchantment for tourists.

A small cultural point on the Montmartre district



The hillock has always been the main feature of the Montmartre district, whose history goes back a long way. First of all, the name Montmartre comes from the Gallo-Roman period, when a temple dedicated to the god of war, Mars, stood on the site of the present-day Saint-Pierre church. Over the centuries, the "Mont de Mars" became "Mont des Martyrs" and then "Mont Martres". The word "martre" is the translation of the word "martyr" in old French.
Formerly an independent commune, Montmartre was attached to the capital in the mid-19th century when Paris was extended. This integration was synonymous with renewal for the "Butte-Montmartre", which then became a popular place for many artists of the time. Unfortunately, however, it was gradually abandoned in favor of the rest of the city. However, the Montmartre district never became empty. It remains a source of inspiration for many people who enjoy discovering it a little more each day.



Frequently Asked Questions by Travelers planning a trip to Montmartre

What not to miss in Montmartre ?

Not to be missed: the Montmartre grape harvest festival, at the beginning of October, which combines cultural events, wine, of course, and gastronomy, in a festive and popular atmosphere.

The Basilique du Sacré-Cœur is the main centre of interest in Montmartre. Firstly, because it can be spotted very quickly, due to its altitude (130 meters), and secondly because it represents the district on its own. Built-in 1874, it overlooks the whole of Paris and is linked to Square Louise Michel, a large green space, by huge stairs. You will have to climb 2,207 steps to reach the basilica but the funicular will allow you to reach the top of the Butte-Montmartre for the price of a metro ticket. 

Moreover, in front of the Basilica, many artists will propose you realize your portrait, which could make a very beautiful souvenir to bring back home.
