    Favorite thing: Montmartre topped by the large and white Sacré-Coeur Catholic basilica, s the highest hill of Paris. Very rural until recently, it still keeps a few windmills such as the illustrious 'Moulin de la Galette'.
    Montmartre is the last village in the big city of Paris. It still keeps a very subtle and unique atmosphere.The many painters of Place du Tertre are always ready to sketch out your face. They remind us of the many pennyless artists who lived there a Bohemian life in the early 20th century (Renoir, Monet, Van Gogh, Picasso among others).
    Walking at random across the hill, you will discover gardens, old houses, steep streets and staircases with magnificent views on Paris. Pay attention. Montmartre can be very crowded during the weekends. Go there in the morning and on weekdays.

    Favorite thing: Chasing the footprint for the artists, Montmartre is always crowded with tourists, perhaps the legend is no longer existed, but under the Sacre-Coeur,the view of overlooking Paris is impressive.

    Favorite thing: A change of perspective helps. Sometimes, being on the inside looking out works better than bieng on the outsdie looking in. Think about it ...

    Favorite thing: A trip to Paris would have been incomplete without a glimpse of the Moulin Rouge. At least for a Tom Cruise fan like myself.

    The Artists Square, Montmatre

    by RuthLuvsPaul Written Jan 26, 2003

    Favorite thing: This is the highest point in all of Paris, and is a bustle or artists and cafes, and of course, tourists. In this area, you can have your portrait drawn, or buy some Parisian art.

    Favorite thing: Check out the Naughty side of Paris (just looking of course!!). The “red light” district of Paris is centered in and around the Rue Pigalle, at the bottom of Monmartre hill.
