Place du Tertre is in a lovely and historic part of Paris. The area has become very touristy but you can still sense what the area use to be like. Mentally cut through the commercialism of the area and enjoy the views, history and atmosphere.
If you are interested in having your portrait sketched or are interested in buying some cheap trinkets or second rate art, this is the place for you. Otherwise visit Sacre Couer and avoid this poor imitation of what was.
We’ve visited Place du Tertre several times through the years and have always enjoyed the lively atmosphere, local artwork and cafes. It is just a few minutes’ walk from the Basilica du Sacre-Couer. While our most recent visit was enjoyable, the charm was lost due...More
I loved it here. It has a different feel from the rest of the city. It has such a wanderful history. Many great artists and writers such as Picasso and Hemingway stayed in this part of Paris. It is full of small side streets and...More
If you want to buy art definitely the place to go. There are a lot of tourists and it can be annoying when people come up to you and try to draw your portrait constantly. But it is very cool to see some of the...More
Last time I visited this place was 25 years ago and it was beautiful. A lovely place to sit and enjoy a coffee and people watch. There were some decent artists and lovely cafes. I returned with my husband to show him the place I'd...More
I love Montmartre, but I try to walk around this square since it is loaded with junky tourist things, such as questionable art and souvenir stores. Better cafes on the side streets away from this crush of tourists.
If you are visiting the Basilica of the Sacré Cœur then this has to be the next place you’ll need to see given it’s just around the corner. With a history which dates back as far as the eleventh century, it’s still a place you’ll...More
The place is full of street arts and painters. It is one specific feeling out there. It is a small square but full of people and full of positive energy. I highly recommend this place. It is Paris like in old days, so I imagine...More
Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colours, and styles which changes from one street to another. Ride the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy
features shops not intended for young audiences, while residences are scattered to the north and east. The diverse population includes a large part from the Arab-speaking world, Africa, and Turkey. It’s a corner of Paris full of life and dynamism with charms that can’t be found anywhere else.
It's a personal choice, of course. But in December the biggest factor will be the weather. Both the Place du Tertre and the basilica steps will be pretty dreary in the rain. The chances of a stunning sunset are not as... More
It's a personal choice, of course. But in December the biggest factor will be the weather. Both the Place du Tertre and the basilica steps will be pretty dreary in the rain. The chances of a stunning sunset are not as great as in the summer, of course, but the view over the city is there all day. So I'd pick my time according to the weather and the clarity of the view. Tourists will be at both venues all day every day.
FORTUNATELY, we went on a sunday and i was under the impresion THAT THEY ONLY ALL CAME OUT IN FORCE ON A SUNDAY. I would make doubly sure by contacting the paris tourist board and confirm they do work during the week the... More
FORTUNATELY, we went on a sunday and i was under the impresion THAT THEY ONLY ALL CAME OUT IN FORCE ON A SUNDAY. I would make doubly sure by contacting the paris tourist board and confirm they do work during the week the artists are all there by 1-00 AND IF YOU GO ON THE SUNDAY AND IT IS A NICE DAY GO AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE BY 12-00 OCLOCK THE PLACE IS HEAVING.
ALSO WE had a portrait done and we werent happy with it, so look around first before you choose.
YOULL LOVE MONMARTRE HAVE A GREAT TIME
