The charm of the Montmartre district

Hôtel Le Marcel Paris Gare de l’Est, Paris

It is one of the most visited areas of Paris. Its authenticity attracts visitors who want to find flowery streets strewn with stairs and old lampposts. It is ideal to spend a moment away from the tumult of Paris in family or in love.

Walk in the typical Parisian

Only a twenty minute walk from the hotel Le Marcel Paris Gare de l’Est is the most charming district of Paris. Montmartre is indeed one of the most endearing places of the capital. This small world dominates the city from the top of its hill with a wonderful view of the Eiffel Tower.

Discover the Sacré Coeur Basilica in Roman-Byzantine style by climbing the 222 steps separating it from Saint-Pierre square or take the funicular to keep your energy to visit the alleys around. You will find the caricaturists of the place of Terter who can paint your portrait. Take a stroll along the cobblestone streets, crossing the small gardens which mark out the facades of the mansions and small buildings on this hill.

The artist center

Montmartre is a paradise for artists and many people have lived there. In addition to the neighborhood bistros and small shops, you can discover the Dali Museum or the houses where painters, singers and writers lived. The Impressionist Camille Pissaro lived in l’Abreuvoir street, while Renoir was in the « allée des brouillards ».

Discover the beautiful Dalida square where a bronze bust stands, not far from his house in the Orchampt street. By the way, you can admire near one of the last mills of the mound converted into a restaurant. Another essential passage is the Marcel Aymé square, where one can admire a reproduction of the hero of his new « passe-muraille »
