Montmartre hill

The Butte de Montmartre - Montmartre hill - is a district of working class and small bourgeoisie, having the privilege to live in the highest point of Paris and have therefore the most spectacular view of this ravishing capital.

Following the step of the eccentric and adorable Amelie Poulain, climb the garden leading to the pure and white Basilica Sacre Coeur. Despite being one of the main attraction of Paris, the Butte de Montmartre keeps its secretiveness and traditionally rural origins. You will feel the quietness and peacefulness of its narrow streets.
