Nice way to get to sacre Coeur
Jan 2020
This was a wonderful street to walk up, to the top of the hill, (Sacre Coeur), on the way we passed through the 8th and 9th Arr, there were many shops to take our mind off the hill, and plenty of cafes to choose from for a break.

This is the street that has it all, great cafe's and shops of every variety. It is has a terrific Parisien charm to it and so close to many places of interest. It leads up to the impressive Sacred Heart Cathedral, birthplace of the Jesuits. Everyone must visit La Rue des Martyrs. I'd live in the neighborhood if I could. Formidable!

Wonderful little part of the city
Jun 2019 • Family
Start at the bottom of Rue des Martyrs say at 3 Rue des Martyrs, and then walk north until you get to Montmartre and the stairs going up to Sacré-Coeur. You'll go by lots of little local stores selling bread, cheese, wine, cafes, bars, etc. You should also read Elaine Sciolino's "The Only Street in Paris" which is all about what it's like to Iive on this street and why it's the best corner of Paris. The idea is that it's unspoiled - neither taken over by big chain supermarkets or clothing stores, nor glutted with tourists, but a true neighborhood where people know each other, and you get to know your local fromager and neighbors have lived there for generations. She was the Paris correspondent for the NYTimes for many years.

We are staying near Rue des Martyrs and didn't realize how lucky we were. We wandered out to look for something to eat and we hit the jackpot!

Lively, energetic and open on Sundays!

The street spans two arrondissements; the 9th and 18th. Historically, Saint Denis was said to have carried his severed head all the way up the street to the foot of the Butte of Montmartre, where he then collapsed.

Today the street, well at least the part in the 9th, is packed with shops and locals. A variety of businesses and amenities; restaurants, cafes, bakeries, fish monger, cured meats, Asian grocers, bags and suitcases....even a mini fairground for the kids.

We visited on a Sunday and amazingly everything except three shops were open and very busy. I would recommend a visit to this street any day but was a great activity for a sleepy Sunday in Paris.

Charming Street.
Jun 2018 • Couples
Normally, you will not get easily in this street, but if you walk from the dapartment stores (Lafayette / Printemps) towards the Sacre Coeur (or the other way around) be sure that you will not miss this lively and charming street.
The street is a concatenation of restaurants, patisseries, gourmet shops and nice little shops.
Recommendable.

Fun, cute street on your way up to Montmartre!
Apr 2018
If you are planning to visit the Sacré Coeur and Montmartre there is no reason why you wouldn't start at the bottom of the Rue de Martyrs. There are cute food shops and many boutiques. We enjoyed ourselves immensely!

Bountiful shops selling authentic French food products with great displays and an emphasis on freshness. Expensive, up scale quality - a must see for anyone who loves good food and appreciates the art of cooking.
Food store managers are friendly, passionate and allow tasters. Don't visit hungry...
