Montmartre is one of Paris’ most famous districts and this fabulous little gem in Paris is definitely worth a visit as it is also the highest point in the city of Paris and has a lot to offer any traveler.  Here are a few of the best things to do and see when in Montmartre:

Places to see in Paris

In my opinion, a typical walk almost always should start at the intriguing Moulin Rouge, with its red windmill in Boulevard de Clichy, at the foot of the hill.  From here you can explore and walk your way up to the top of the famous Montmartre hill.

On your way up the hill, you’ll see fabulous and famous places like Cafe des Deux Moulins (Cafe des 2 Moulins – Cafe of the 2 windmills) in Rue Lepic (street), a delightful little restaurant from the movie Amelie.  Further up is a grocery store which is also from the movie.  Cafe des Deux Moulins is named after two windmills in the area:

  • Moulin du Radet (dating back to 1717 and situated in Rue Lepic), which is now a restaurant, and
  • Moulin Blute-Fin (dating back to 1622) is still in working condition.

Also in the area, you’ll find Le Mur des Je t’aime (The wall of love).  This wall says ‘I love you in more than 300 languages.  Situated at Square Jehan-Rictus, Pl. Des Abbesses.
