In the north of Paris, the Montmartre district is famous for the Basilica of Sacré-Cœur and the panoramic view of Paris. To reach the neighbourhood you can take the funicular or you can climb the 222 steps of the Rue Foyatier. Once on top of the Butte Montmartre, the Place du Tertre with its famous caricaturists recalls the early 20th century, when Picasso and Utrillo lived up there.
The district has kept its village-like charm, with narrow lanes, restaurants and a vineyard in the Rue des Saules. On either side of the vines are the restaurants the Moulin de la Galette, the famous cabaret Lapin Agile and the Montmartre Museum that tells the story of the neighbourhood. Going down the hill once more, you will come to the Pigalle district with its famous Moulin Rouge.
Also worth seeing: the shops in the Rue Lepic, the Rue de Steinkerque and the Rue des Abbesses; the Montmartre Cemetery where Dalida, Offenbach and Berlioz are buried; the Dali Museum, a unique museum in Paris devoted to the Surrealist master.
