Montmartre

The Neighbourhood of Montmartre is an ancient village in the 18th arrondissement which was annexed to Paris in 1860. Close to the district of Pigalle, it is located to the North of the capital, on the “Butte Montmartre” 130m tall hill.

The Montmartre district: a parisian village

At the top of a 237 steps climb, sits majestically the Sacré Coeur Basilica which is the monument that reaches the highest into the Parisian sky, alongside the Eiffel Tower. From its forecourt, one can discover one of the most beautiful panoramic views of the capital. On a clear day, an onlooker can see all around for 30 miles. Barely a stone’s throw away from the Basilica is the Place du Tertre, a lively square where artists will be delighted to do your portrait for the first time. Surrounded by quaint little streets and alleys you can find information desk, press kiosk and the Espace Dali dedicated to the surrealist painter.

Living in Montmartre: between artists and cabarets

At the foot of Montmartre, Pigalle offers a variety of burlesque entertaining such as bars and night-clubs where to get out. The beginning of the 20th century saw the Montmartre became one of the most central artistic areas of Paris, a place where Picasso, Toulouse-Lautrec, Van Gogh and Modigliani performed and used to call home. The Montmartre butte is also a popular destination for connoisseurs of theatre and cabarets as it is where the legendary “Chat Noire” and “Lapin Agile” can be seen. The French singers Edith Piaf and Georges Brassens both began their careers on stage at this place. Immortalized by French Impressionist painter Renoir, the former popular cabaret of the Moulin de la Galette is the only windmill in Montmartre that is still in working conditions. At the foot of the Montmartre hill, close to the metro “Blanche”, 82 boulevard de Clichy, can be found the most famous cabaret in the world, of the Belle Epoque period, in Paris France. The Moulin Rouge is well-known by European and American people. Experience the festive atmosphere of Montmartre and spend a delightful evening seeing a show in “le Moulin Rouge”, discover the performance of the women dancers with their amazing costumes, spectacular can-can. Enjoy a nice cup of Champagne while seating at a table in front of the stage during the show.

Discover the treasures of Montmartre and dive into the heart of a Parisian and authentic district, which has offered to tourists while maintaining its identity.
