Place du Tertre: Meeting artist...and others

A "must" for the visitor of Paris: You will not find anything elsewhere as much of artists (good and less good) concentrated. Landscape artists, portraitistes, outline tailors, calligraphers, ... dispute themselves the least square meter in order to win some Euro.

If a portrait interest you, choose an artist having good examples, AND do NOT FORGET to bargain over. I see to ask 20 Euro for a portrait, but 10 seconds later, visionary the customer to hesitate, bring back the price to 15 Euro.

Surroundings the shops of memories are crammed useless objects alternate with cafés and restaurants. More better is worth to choose another place to eat and especially to drink seen the prohibitive prices asked.


Un "must" pour le visiteur de Paris: Vous ne trouverez nulle part ailleurs autant d'artistes (bons et moins bons) concentrés. Paysagistes, portraitistes, silhouettistes, calligraphes,... se disputent le moindre mètre carré afin de gagner quelques euros.

Si un portrait vous intéresses, choisissez un artiste ayant de bons exemples, ET N'OUBLIEZ PAS de marchander. J'ai vu demander 20 euros pour un portrait, mais 10 secondes plus tard, voyant le client hésiter, ramener le prix à 15 euros.

Alentours les boutiques de souvenirs regorges d'objets inutiles alternent avec les cafés et restaurants. Mieux vaut choisir un autre endroit pour manger et sourtout pour boire vus les prix prohibitifs demandés.
