Fall in love with Montmartre

Montmartre, Montmartre! The beautiful artsy area in Paris where you can eat well, enjoy cultural experiences as well as get your portrait taken.

I fell in love with this area in Paris which is located in the 18th district in Paris.

Top 4 things to do in Montmartre

What is there to do in this beautiful part of Paris? Here are some suggestions!

1. Visit the Musée de Montmartre

I stayed there for around four hours just enjoying the view. There is a beautiful inner courtyard and you can enjoy art as well as learn the history of the area.

It cost 12 euro to get in which I thought was a bit much but was still worth the trip. And don’t forget to ask for an audio guide – this way you’ll get much more out of your visit, this I learned from checking the reviews on Google!

I sat in the garden writing a letter to my friend. The sun was gazing and the moment there was so quiet and inspiring. To sit in this area where famous painters also have gotten inspired was a great inspiring moment to just sit and think (see my post on Instagram here). I do strongly recommend a visit!

And preferably without any hurry.

2. Walk around and enjoy the artsy vibe of Montmartre

This was my favourite part of the city: the lovely vibe. So many artists around painting and drawing. So inspiring!

The best place to visit is the market with nice restaurants where you can sip your wine while people walk around you.

SoloSophie has a great walking tour that I used for inspiration – check it out here!

3. Get your portrait taken

There are so many artists who can make your portrait there, don’t worry.

Many of these are found in the main squares.


4. Visit the Cacré-Cœur

This basilica is probably one of the must-sees in Paris and usually has a really long line.

Oh and it is not far from here to the Moulin Rouge either!

Hope you’ll love Montmartre as much as I do!
