Rue Lepic is a timeworn windy road in the commune of Montmartre, climbing the steep hill from the Boulevard de Clichy to the Place Jean-Baptiste-Clément. Enjoy walking up this lovely little road with its ample small food shops but shops are usually closed on Monday morning. At the top of the road there is a sign which marks the location... More

It's a nice street full of pretty shops at the very beginning selling various staff, then becoming more quiet while climbing up to the basilica. Some famous artists used to live here some time ago. Nice alternative to reach Sacre Coeur without crowds.

Amongst other things in Rue Lepic you will find the Cafe dse Deux Moulins of Amelie fame. Further up the road, if you look hard, you will find a plaque on the wall of the house where Vincent Van Gogh lived with his brother Theo.

Having gone up the steps to Sacre-Coeur, this was our route down from Montmartre, to the Cemetery. It's an interesting little street at the top end, with windmills and lots of lovely buildings to look at.

This serpentine street leads to the beautiful church of Sacred heart through charming stores, traditional boulangeries and bistros. It is rising so be prepared, but it will compensate your effort. At a point you will also find "le mulin de la galette", one of the last remaining historical windmills in Montmartre.

This is an old, charming street that leads to the hill of Montmartre, where lived or worked many historical persons and where you can see a lot of interesting places. Due to its distinctive look and feel, it was often inspiration for artists and it is the closest experience of Paris it once was, that you can have today. There... More

Had to see the Moulin de la Galette and 54 rue Lepic (Van Gogh) apartment. Scenic walk, but it is very steep. Hard for someone not fit. If you've got knee problems, forget it.

I like this neighborhood.. Great place to spend an evening climbing the hill to Sacre Couer, and maybe eating in one of the tourist trap restaurants. Not a must do by any stretch of the imagination, but another fun neighborhood in Paris.

Staying in Montmartre

Neighbourhood Profile
Montmartre
Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colours, and styles which changes from one street to another. Ride the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy features shops not intended for young audiences, while residences are scattered to the north and east. The diverse population includes a large part from the Arab-speaking world, Africa, and Turkey. It’s a corner of Paris full of life and dynamism with charms that can’t be found anywhere else.
