1 Parvis du Sacré-Cœur, 75018 Paris-18E-Arrondissement, France
Montmartre is a small hill in Paris and forms one of the most popular neighborhoods in the city. At the top stands the white dome of the Sacré Cœur, a temple built in honor of all French citizens who lost their lives during the Franco Prussian war. The stairs in front of the Basilica offer spectacular views to visitors and tourists with all of Paris at your feet. When thinking about this neighborhood, it also comes to mind the idea of it being the cradle of the nineteenth century bohemian Paris and the Impressionists. In fact, today, the neighborhood still has this reputation and stands out as one of the epicenters of painters and craftsmen artists of the French capital. Montmartre is also notable for having top quality bars and restaurants - among them, the bar where Amelie was filmed - and also because it offers plenty of nightlife. Although this part of the city receives many visitors the entire day, it is a must to wander the streets of this neighborhood, which has a calmer atmosphere than central Paris.
