Why Visit Paris
For People Who Want To Visit Paris Someday

 

Walk 3: The Montmartre Walk

Montmartre is definitely a place you want to visit. It's located on a hill or "butte" at one of the highest spots in Paris, where you get fabulous views all over the City.

As it's located on a hill, this walk is a bit more strenuous than some of the other Paris walks, but don't let that stop you. You can visit the sights in the order you want, but a logical place to start is at the Moulin Rouge. The toughest climb is up to Sacre Coeur, but there is a funiculaire to help you, if you wish.

Plenty of places to eat in and around Place du Tetre, but everywhere's full of tourists.

So, starting at Moulin Rouge, you could walk as follows:

Moulin Rouge
Sacré Coeur
Place du Tertre
Montmartre Museum
Clos Montmartre Vinyard
Le Lapin Agile
Dalí Museum
Montmartre Cemetery
Montmartre Windmills
Bateau Lavoir

How long should you allow?

Perhaps 2 or 3 hours for a walk of 2 miles or 3 kilometres, obviously longer if you have breaks for coffee or lunch.
