Montmartre was a former village outside Paris until 1860, located on top of the hill overlooking the city, it is a must-see quarter. Since the 19th century the area was frequented by many artists such as Renoir, Van Gogh, Picasso and Modigliani who settled here.
The white-domed basilica of the Sacre Cœur overlooking the capital is the symbol of the district and deserves a detour. Nearby, the square called « place du Tertre », where painters and caricaturists spread their easels, is the major curiosity.

Join me on one of my favourite walking tours around the Marais quarter and its amazing old mansions. The Place des Vosges is undoubtedly the most magnificent square of Paris to me.
