Tourist • Artsy • Iconic
Born of a rebellious spirit, Montmartre is a neighborhood with attitude. Sex shops, bars, and kebab joints pepper Boulevard de Clichy — at the base of the hill — in the shadow of the glorious Basilica of Sacre-Coeur — which is perched high above. Comfy shoes are de rigueur for venturing onto this village's cobblestone streets by foot. But visitors with mobility issues or small children can easily ride the cute little train down alleys and up hills, viewing sights like street artists and windmills. Here is your chance to live the sought-after Parisian artist lifestyle — Van Gogh and Picasso did call Montmartre home, after all.
