In the oldest house on the hill of Montmartre lived fourteen personalities, among whom Renoir, Valadon, Dufy and Poulbot. Take a step back in time to the glory days of this independent and bohemian quarter through original works by Utrillo, Toulouse-Lautrec and Willette at the Montmartre Museum. The gardens and the atmosphere have a rustic feel to them, making this is a very special site in the heart of Paris.

This museum claims to the the most charming in Paris, and indeed it is. The restored complex of houses and studio, not to mention the gardens, its proximity to Le Lapin Agile and the vineyard take one back to the artistic heyday of Montmartre. Suzanne...More

I can't say enough about this beautiful little gem in Monmartre. It's just off the beaten path, a few steps beyond the artists and cafes behind Sacre Coeur. It was our third trip to Paris with our kids who are now teenagers, and we needed...More

What a magical place! To walk among the building and grounds that were once inhabited by Renoir, Suzanne Valadon, and Maurice Utrillo was a thrill. When you're up in Valadon's apartment, make sure to look out the window to see Le Lapin Agile over the...More

While the entry fee is high (11 Euro), this museum is worth the visit. Situated in a house that was most famously occupied by Maurice Utrillo and his mother Suzanne Valadon, the museum is something of an homage to old Montmarte, the rural community that...More

Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colours, and
styles which changes from one street to another. Ride
the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the
steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the
Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The
church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano
bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers
thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy

no need for advance purchase. very small museum... 2 hours is plenty. take the funicular down and then watch for pickpockets and scam artists (3 card monte, etc....) Area is known for tourist crimes.
