There’s a reason why Montmartre is always bustling. This iconic hilltop neighborhood’s striped awnings, cobblestone streets, and lively plazas rest at the foot of its pilgrimage-worthy basilica, Sacre Coeur. The neighborhood’s sacred structure and artisanal shops encourage frequent foot traffic, but Montmartre's ceaseless activity invites more than pleasure strollers along its cinema-worthy streets—entrepreneurial misfits add a picaresque slant to Montmartre’s picturesque street scenes.See places to stay Save this neighborhood

A Tourist's Look at Paris' Village on a Hill
If you speak New York City, Montmartre is like NoLita without the noise and obnoxious behavior at night. No Upper West Side big box retail to be found anywhere in sight, and excellent people watching. Not quite as intense as Le Marais and still has some urban edge to it as you go down the hill."
