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 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.

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

I do not really know. However, can you not email the town hall and ask them for a list of the artists. Best luck. 0 seconds ago

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
