Montmartre

I didn’t spend a lot of time exploring this area, but I did get to walk around Montmartre a small amount. Montmartre is the area of Paris that is perched on top a large hill. It borders the northern edge of the city and became famous for its popularity with artists including Claude Monet and many others. Today, it continues to be one of the more bohemian and edgy sections of Paris. However, parts of Montmartre are covered with tourists and cheesy shops.

Note: Although there is a Funiculare for those wishing to visit the Sacre Coeur church, the area is fairly steep and is not the best for people with mobility issues. The metro stop is the deepest in the city and I noticed even children were huffing and puffing to get to the top.
