Montmartre is as authentic a Paris neighbourhood as it can be. Here are our own suggestions to make your stay a memorable one.
Located at the center of the Butte Montmartre, with typical Parisian shops and stores such as bakeries, butchers and fruits and vegetable stores, cafés and restaurants with early 20th century architecture, it remains the daytime sight to go for in the Montmartre Village
Montmartre, one of the most visited sightseeing places in the world, is traditionally credited and associated with sheltering and highlighting the most intensely authentic artistic Parisian life. All early 20th Century most famous painters lived there at that time. Today, even the advent of digital communication has not deterred old fashion painters and drawers from luring tourists in search for a sketch or a drawing from exposing their traditional work about the Butte Montmartre, who keeps fascinating art lovers with its originality. Perpetuating the tradition, the Place du Tertre a few feet away from the Sacré-Coeur Church is the square famous visitors and Parisian locals alike come for a drink, a portrait or a sandwich baguette and a glass of wine. All the restaurants surround the pavement where works of art are on display. About 300 artists share the pavement all year long.
The National Assembly of France voted for its constuction in 1873 and work was completed in the year 1910.. Stones used for the church are known for a special chemical ability when in contact with water. Its bell, called the ‘Bell from Savoy’, is the most important bell in terms of size of the whole country. It weighs 18835kgs, standing at least 3 meters tall in height and is about 9 meters in diameter. It is a must see for every visitor notwithstanding the feetsweeping landscape awaiting the climbing Christian pilgrim at 130meters above the ground.

Daydreaming is a permanent offer at the Dali Museum, where most if not all works from the Surrealism master are on display, including sculptures and lithographies. More than 300 works make up for the year round exhibit and most visitors who pay homage to his works come out with a fantasy instant lure into the meanders of the unconscious mind as a model and loot.
The only windmill left with the Moulin Radet of all thirty that used to ornate the Butte Montmartre, the Moulin de la Galette is also the most photogenic of all. It was painted and acclaimed by Renoir, Toulouse Lautrec and Picasso and is still working. One cannot visit it but can admire it from a distance once on rue Lepic. It is located on the higher end of the Butte Montmartre.
Montmartre’s vineyard: A must see in all Paris and the only one harvested like in most countryside regions of France, also authentically grown and planted. Dating from 1932, it extends its winestock on more than a kilometer. Amateurs will recognise wines such as Gamay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Riesling along with Pinot. Yearly production amounts to one ton. Visitors are usually allowed in the wine stock garden and harvest is done in autumn.
