In Montmartre, we do not miss:

1- The visit of the Sacré-Coeur:

4- Shopping in the Abbesses district

  • departure rue des Abbesses
  • All the fashionable shops of the moment and for the "big teenagers" are installed in the district of the Abbesses.
  • Shops are open on Sundays

5- 3 nice museums to see with the family in Montmartre

If we have a little time, there are 3 small museums in Montmartre. They can be visited quite quickly and are in our opinion interesting.  It's an ideal family visit!

  • the Montmartre Museum and Renoir's gardens. The view on the vineyards of Montmartre. Open every day, all year round from 10am to 6pm. The temporary exhibitions are generally very interesting. Workshops also for children
  • the Dali Museum which is a very nice little museum devoted to the surrealist artist. Open every day, all year round from 10am to 6pm, except on 24th and 25th December.
  • the Halle Saint-Pierre, an atypical place in Paris at the same time art gallery, museum, bookstore, place of conference. Also, programming of concerts and shows. The coffee corner is very nice and spacious enough to go with a stroller.
