Stand in front of the beautiful Sacré Coeur, and take in the view of the whole of Paris, while listening to the local singers. Just sit on the stairs, and enjoy! It’s breathtaking and the atmosphere of Montmartre is unique!
The Belvedere of Belleville is one of the only viewpoints in Paris where you’ll meet only locals. It’s located in the 20th district, which is not the most central district. From up there, you can enjoy the park, drink wine and share a plate in a cosy bar, and you can even discover some street art!
