Our hotel partner, Booking.com, offers competitive rates on hotels and apartments in all categories. Listings include ratings and reviews by paying guests.

Sightseeing and shopping:

You needn't worship the Sacred Heart to enjoy blood-stirring views from Montmartre's hilltop basilica. (But avoid the "string men" at the base of the hill.)

Dalida in Montmartre
One of France's most celebrated singers is remembered with a tomb in Montmartre Cemetery, a public square, and a fan-polished bronze bust.

Erotic Museum
The Musée d l'Erotisme has its share of X-rated Hindu temple carvings and early 20th Century raciness, but its best feature may be the exhibit about Paris brothels from the late 1800s through 1946.

Marché Saint-Pierre
If shopping for fabric strikes your fancy, bring a steamer trunk (or, better yet, a van) to the Marché Saint-Pierre cloth district in the 18th arrondissement.

Transportation in Montmartre:

Montmartre Funicular
If you can't stand steep hills, the Funiculaire de Montmartre is one way to reach Sacré-Coeur without getting out of breath.
