Description

One of the most popular tourist spots, yet with timeless charms is the hill of Montmartre dominated by the Sacré Coeur Basilica. As well as enjoying the stunning walk up to the white domed basilica, the winding streets up the hill retain their Belle Époque charm, lined with small shops and “struggling artists”. Montmartre was the home of many artists who based themselves in Paris including Salvador Dalí, Amedeo Modigliani, Claude Monet, , Piet Mondrian, Pablo Picasso and Vincent van Gogh. Head to the area just before lunch, peruse the shops, maybe have a caricature artist draw a portrait of you and then rest on the white steps of the basilica, taking in the views and enjoying a fresh baguette filled with delicious French produce.
