This is the district that contains the Montmartre area, one of Paris' most unique and picturesque districts. We once had an apartment here and loved our time here due to the great restaurants and cafes plus unique architecture. Lots of hill climbing but it's worth...More

One friend told me to visit the 12th district and it was boring, and another friend said I had to go to Montmarte in the 18th district and he was spot on! The area was so alive. The entire district was rocking but we did...More

The 18th Arrondissement is in the Montmartre area and it's star of the show is the Sacre Coeur and the hill top location overlooking Paris. Absolutely wonderful area.

I lived in the 18th for two years and maybe in biased, but if you are a tourist it's a perfect place to start. Take the metro to chateau rouge station and walk up Rue Custine to Montmartre, it's one of the most beautiful walks...More

Dominate this Arrondissement along with great skyline views and views over Paris. Despite the tacky souvenirs and street hawkers it remains one of the nicest areas of Paris to wander around. 1868.

I used to live here and loved my time in this northern district full of little villages. The big attraction is Montmartre with its charming hilly streets, views & great architecture. But there is so much more including some diverse immigrant quarters.
