A day in Montmartre, the artists’ district
Just half an hour by metro from your hotel in Montparnasse, you will find the unmistakable district of Montmartre. Start your visit by taking the funicular which will drop you at the foot of the Sacré-Cœur Basilica . Built in the XIXth century, it has a particular architectural style. From the top, you will enjoy a breathtaking view of Paris. Continue the walk down the famous stairs.
As you walk through the streets, you can meet various artists presenting their works: paintings, sculptures, music, etc. Do not miss the city of “Montmartre-aux-artistes” and continue your visit by the Père Lachaise Cemetery. You will find the graves of famous celebrities like those of the singer Dalida, the writer Émile Zola or even the director François Truffaut.
If you still have a little time, finish your journey in the artists’ quarter by entering the museum of Montmartre. His temporary exhibition is devoted to cinema decorations. A place to visit with family or friends to relive the biggest scenes.
A weekend in Paris between the Champs Elysées and the Louvre.
20 minutes of metro are enough, from your hotel district Montparnasse, to reach the station Champs-Elysées-Clemenceau. Situated in front of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, you can admire the Arc de Triomphe. Going down the “most beautiful avenue in the world”, you will arrive at La Concorde. This square, dating from the 18th century, is a symbol of the French Revolution. This is the very spot where the famous French revolutionary Maximilian de Robespierre was guillotined.
A stone’s throw away is the Jardin des Tuileries, listed as a Historical Monument in France. It is also a World Heritage Site by Unesco. Cross it to reach the palace of the Louvre.
