Montmartre is often the favorite place tourists visit in Paris. It is like a little village high on a hill overlooking Paris and it gives you an idea, despite the many tourists and trashy gift shops, of what it must have been like up there when all of the Impressionists hung out here painting and learning from each other.

A view of Montmartre as you come up the back side of the hill. It’s usually packed with tourists. You can often hear music being played and find a mime or two here.
If the sun is out, I always go into the small church there called St Pierre because the stained glass windows there make beautiful paterns on the walls.
