Walk around Montmartre before heading up to the Sacré-Cœur BasilicaThe pretty bohemian Montmartre area used to be home to many artists such as Dali, Van Gogh and Picasso. Today, the neighbourhood thankfully retains its village-like charm because development has been restricted in the area. Walk around to take in the colourful cafes, interact with the caricature artists waiting to impress you and tour the patisseries, bookshops and perfumeries. Then head up the highest point in the city – the Sacré-Cœur Basilica, which sits on a hill. You can climb till the dome of this Roman Catholic church or just sit in the park behind it, to admire its architecture.
