Trip To Montmartre

Montmartre is primarily known for its artistic history, the white-domed Basilica of the Sacré-Cœur on its summit, and as a nightclub district. The other church on the hill, Saint Pierre de Montmartre, built in 1147, was the church of the prestigious Montmartre Abbey.

Montmartre is a romantic neighborhood full of cobblestones and sparkling plazas. Whenever I’m in Paris, I always stop here. If you’ve never been before, I highly recommend taking a guided tour. It’s the best way to get a sense of the history and local culture. This is the tour I took when I first visited. It’s the best! My guide was super knowledgeable and funny — he even told us where to find a favorite café of his! You can also find other options here.
