"Get Your Walking Shoes Ready!" Butte de Montmartre Tip by ChrisRJ

Butte de Montmartre, Paris: 210 reviews and 399 photos

 
 

If memory serves me the Sacre Coeur is at one of the highest points in Paris. It is located in the district of Montmartre which is an old artist area of Paris.

Right behind the Sacre Coeur you'll find a web of small streets that lead to a cool square that I've forgotten the name of. Here there are plenty of places to eat, drink and enjoy the afternoon.

One tip: If you arrive in the area on the Metro and there's an elevator to the street level, take it. You may see a ton of people waiting for the elevator, but there's a reason. In this part of Paris you're way down beneath the ground. When we got there we thought "forget waiting, let's take the stairs". 3 days later we reached the street level.

Address: Montmartre. 75018 Paris
Directions: Part of the Right Bank in the northern section of the city.
