Montmartre is a historic, romantic area, renowned for the basilica of the Sacré-Coeur and a beautiful view of Paris. Visitors will ride the funicular to the top of the hill of Montmartre for the cost of a metro fare. More sporty types can climb the 222 steps leading up through the Louise Michel public garden. After visiting the basilica, you can enjoy strolling around this historical area: there is Place du Tertre and its famous caricaturists, the Espace Dalí, the Montmartre grapevines, the cabaret du Lapin Agile, the Musée Montmartre … The walk continues down to the world-famous Moulin Rouge cabaret.
There is plenty of interest on the way: arty and trendy shop windows in rue des Abbesses and rue Tardieu, shops in rue Lepic, the cosmopolitan rue de Steinkerque, the saucy district of Pigalle (sex shops) and the cemetery of Montmartre. In SoPi (South Pigalle), a few minutes walk from the Moulin Rouge, the tea room in the Musée de la Vie Romantique garden is a lovely place to stop for refreshments.
