Bucolic Montmartre


One of the most enchanting arrondissements  of our dear capital and a must do  for any stay in Paris. This district has kept a village soul and an artistic vibes, manages to associates major tourist places, charming hotels, delicious restaurants with hidden  passages and beautiful sceneries far from the tourists.




The 18th arrondissement is notably known for its famous places: the Sacred Heart Basilica, the Butte Montmartre, the Moulin Rouge amongst others. Maybe more than any other arrondissements, it shows an impressive diversity whether you talk about the neighborhood vibes : Grandes-Carrières, Clignancourt, la Goutte-d’Or and Montmartre. The chic coexists with the cheap. The population also is very cosmopolitan population, you really find the whole world  concentrated.

Concerning the architecture, it is rather disparate, we do find Haussmannian buildings, especially after the 1860 annexion, on the big avenues or boulevards but a vast part has been left untouched, revealing numerous courtyards and small inner gardens. Threelittle wonders: the Théâtre de l’Atelier, one of the few 19th century Parisian theaters still in operation today, the Art Nouveau metro station of Abbesses, designed by Herve Guimard himself, last but not least, And finally, the most unusual cemetery of the capital! A part of the tombstones of the Montmartre cemetery is hidden under a bridge.
