Why locals love it

Montmartre is one of the most beautiful places in Paris to wander. Although parts of it are touristy, exploring the area behind the Sacre Coeur allows you to take a step back in time with its winding streets, wild gardens and "folies" that birthed the 19th century Impressionist movement.

Why you should visit it

Down the hill you’ll find Paris' only remaining vineyard, planted in the 1930s to prevent urban encroachment, which still has a harvest party every year. You can also find a number of small museums such as the Museum of Montmartre housed in the oldest building in the neighbourhood – la Maison du Bel Air.

Special tip

As you wander down the hill, see if you can spot some fantastic homes with gargoyles, fairies and magical beasts carved into them – the “folies”.

Good for shopping and dinning! Great olace with wonding streets. Sacre C is a good visit espefially the Dome. Tickets cost 6 euros and take 300 steps to reach the top. Best views of Paris

Hello ! I Kriszti a cariboo that will make you spend unforgettable moments in my city. We will build together the tour! I live in Paris but I'm from Hungary. I study here, I'm in love with the French capital - I think that's why I have continued to enjoy this city so much. I could be your guide in the parks, streets or unmissable places. I would be able to guide you through less touristic places, as I know the center and the unknown parts of Paris. I'm really interested in art, photography and I can advise you to museums, galleries and current events and demonstrations in Paris. I am a very big fan of pastries and will be the perfect guide if you want to try all the pastries - bakeries in the French capital. More information: juliette.baba@gmail.com Hope to ear from you soon, Kriszti
