Places to see and stay in Montmartre one of the oldest areas of Paris

Montmartre is one of the most picturesque neighborhoods in Paris, boasting stunning views of the city from its hilltop location. If you're a first-timer in Montmartre, you'll want to know the best spots to take pictures and capture the beauty of this neighborhood.

One of the most popular spots is the Sacré-Cœur Basilica, located on top of the hill. From here, you can see the city in all its glory, and the view is especially breathtaking at sunset when the sky turns pink and orange. Another great spot to take pictures is the Place du Tertre, an iconic square filled with artists and their easels. Here you can capture the lively atmosphere of Montmartre and take a portrait from one of the artists.

Don't forget to visit the famous Moulin Rouge windmill, which has become a symbol of Montmartre and Paris itself. It's a great spot to take a picture with friends or family. For a more hidden gem, visit the Rue Lepic, a charming street lined with colorful houses and artisanal shops. You'll feel like you've stepped back in time to a quieter, more quaint Paris.

Finally, stroll around the picturesque vineyard of Montmartre, located just a stone's throw away from the bustling Place du Tertre. Here, you can take a picture of the vineyard's stunning view of the city and appreciate a little slice of nature in the heart of Paris. These spots are just a few of the many places to take pictures in Montmartre, but they'll give you a great start in capturing the beauty of this neighborhood.

It is important to know which landmarks to see to make the most out of your visit. First on the list is the iconic Sacré-Cœur Basilica, a stunning white church that sits atop a hill and offers a breathtaking panoramic view of the city. A visit to Montmartre is not complete without climbing the steps to the basilica and taking in the stunning view of Paris from above.

Another famous landmark to see is the Moulin Rouge, the world-famous cabaret that has been entertaining visitors since 1889. While the shows can be quite expensive, a visit to the exterior of the building is worth it to see the famous red windmill and take in the history of the area.

The Place du Tertre is also a must-visit landmark. This charming square is filled with artists selling their work and is a great place to have your portrait painted or to pick up a unique souvenir. Last but not least is the Wall of Love, a colorful wall covered in the words "I love you" in over 300 languages. This romantic landmark is a great spot for a photo op and a chance to declare your love in a unique and memorable way. Overall, Montmartre is filled with famous landmarks and attractions that are sure to make your first visit to Paris a memorable one.
