On the trail of famous artists.
Montmartre (French pronunciation: [mɔ̃.maʁtʁ]) is a large hill in Paris's 18th arrondissement. It is 130 metres high and gives its name to the surrounding district, part of the Right Bank in the northern section of the city. The historic district established by the City of Paris in 1995 is bordered by rue Caulaincourt and rue Custine on the north; rue de Clignancourt on the east; boulevard de Clichy and boulevard de Rochechouart to the south.

Montmartre is the quintessential right bank Parisian neighborhood. You may recognize this hilly part of town from Amelie, and some popular local attractions include the Basilica of Sacre Coeur, which looks over a small square filled with artists. It's touristy, but lovely.
A visit to Paris without stopping at Montmarte - impossible! One of the most picturesque and romantic places in Paris. It's best to take a break, wander and let the atmosphere of the area have its effect on you. The view on Paris from the stairs below the Sacré Coeur is amazing - also fans of the movie "Amélie" can visit the "Cafè des Deux Moulins".
Sonnenuntergang auf den Stiegen in Montmarte: Eine Flasche Rotwein, ein frisches Baguette, einen guten Stinkekäse und ein Schweizer Taschenmesser (Messer und Korkenzieher) - UND ein nettes Date = das perfekte Ende eines anstrengenden Sightseeing Tages in Paris.
