Montmartre is a great place to walk around and best reachable via the subway. To reach the top, it’s a relatively easy walk by stairs, but you can also use the Montmartrobus.
There are also many shops, beautiful buildings, and cafes in the town where you can easily spend the whole morning. Every morning at Place du Tertre, artist gather to draw illustrations or portraits. It is a little square in the heart of Montmartre.
We’ve been told that the oldest vineyard of Paris is located in Montmartre as well.
Next up, visit ‘La Maison Rose’ (the pink house), located on the most beautiful street in Paris: Rue de l’Abreuvoir. This gorgeous pink house with green shutters is a famous cafe that used to be visited by many renowned writers, poets, and artists.
Pigalle basketball & Moulin Rouge
Our personal favorite and surprise during this Paris City Trip was the Pigalle Basketball court. Together with Nike, the fashion brand Pigalle designed this a-ma-zing-looking basketball court. We have to say that it is only allowed to take pictures here if you have permission from a local. Please always respect this. Update 2023: Unfortunately, this field has been redesigned and lost its beautiful design.
