The winding streets of Montmartre, in the 18th arrondissement of Paris, is the bohémien side of
Paris. The hilly and winding streets has long been a haven for artists; Picasso, Van Gogh, Monet...
Above is the Musée de Montmartre and is a good place to start to learn more about their adventurous and often over indulgent lives here.
Truly a mix for the senses, from the noisy and scandalous (in my opinion) cabarets and 'shops' of Pigalle to the quiet and shuttered homes and apartments that make you feel you're in the country.
You're sure to find an abundance of people, places and things that are interesting, delightful and surprising.
A good place to start is on the steps of the Basilique du Sacré-Cœur de Montmartre to enjoy the gorgeous views of Paris. If you time it for a perfect sunset that's even better.
