Arrondissement 18, Montmartre and Paris hill
What I like about arrondissement 18 is that you can admire the city from above, since it includes Paris hill. Plus, when you go there, you have lots of things to visit. From the Sacre-Coeur church to the Montmartre cemetery.
To arrive at the attractions and landmarks of this area, you have to walk through tiny streets where there are lots of traditional boutiques and cafès.
If you change district and go to La Chapelle, you can go to La Chapelle Market, one of the most famous in the city.
Talking about the 18 arrondissement of Paris, I can’t forget to mention that it is the one where you can visit the Moulin Rouge, in Pigalle. Nowadays, you can go there to see the famous Moulin Rouge and also boutiques, bio shops, and ateliers.

Arrondissement 18, the Paris hill
Arrondissement 18 is perfect if, just like me, you love to see the cities from above. When you go to the Sacré-Coeur church, you can see all the city from the hill where it is. It is in Montmartre. “Mont” stands for “hill” or “mount” in French! Montmartre is also known as the Paris hill!
When you visit the interiors of the Sacré Coeur cathedral, remember to pay attention to the pipe organs! They are absolutely rare and charming also for those who do not play an instrument.
The arrondissement XVIII is one of those areas where you can appreciate the history that made it so important. Plus, if you want to take a break, there are lots of small cafès and bistros where you can taste good traditional cuisine even if the zone is touristic.
