Located towards the north of Paris’ city centre, the 18th arrondissement is home to the staggeringly beautiful Montmartre. This extremely romantic district rises up out of the ground some 130 metres above the city and commands incredible panoramic views from its summit. Montmartre is famously admired for its pretty white domed Basilica of the Sacré Cœur that sits on the top like a gleaming cherry on a huge cake. Historically Montmartre has attracted all kinds of creative people drawn by its excellent light and relatively liberal laid back attitude. Most notably Salvador Dali, Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Claude Monet and Piet Mondrian all set up studios at some time in their early artistic careers. You will surely adore exploring the delightful winding streets and lanes enchantingly littered with pretty cafes, bistros and unusual gift shops.
The summit of Montmartre can be accessed via various means of transport. You could hop on one of the many buses which wind their way around the hill on their way to the top. Alternatively the quickest way up is via an ingenious funicular railway that departs from its base station just a five minute walk to the north from Anvers metro station. The journey takes only a matter of minutes but will spare you an initial steep climb. This option however still requires some effort on your part as you have to continue your journey to the summit via a huge flight of white steps. At least you have the option to take the slightly more leisurely side-winding stairs if you so wish. The views across the city of Paris from the top are simply stunning and make the journey’s climb more than worth your trouble.
The streets that adorn the foothills and summit of Montmartre have a certain romantic vintage dreaminess and it is no surprise to learn that it was chosen as the filming location of the internationally popular French movie Amelie. You will be amazed at how little set dressing was necessary here. Indeed you will feel as though you have stumbled into an actual scene from this most charming film. If you are an Audrey Tatou fan then you may like to seek out some of the buildings and locations used. There are many movie fan websites that can provide you with the actual addresses if you are interested in seeing them all.
Montmartre has boasted a well established night-life for centuries. It is home to the popular cabarets Le Chat Noir and the Moulin Rouge. There is nothing more Parisian than a night out at one of these fabled establishments. The latter is of course the birth place of the famous French Can-Can and was immortalised by the painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and later Hollywood. A visit here will provide you with some truly energetic cabaret that’s concept has remained fairly unchanged since 1889 – feathers, sequins, dazzling sets, original music and of course stunning show-girls. When you emerge from Blanche, the nearest Metro station, head straight for the giant revolving neon windmill and enjoy an exhilarating night out like none other.
