Paris - Montmartre

Montmartre -Gare de l'Est

Travellers bound for Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and eastern France mill around the Gare de l'Est. The western wing, built between 1847 and 1850, is the last of Paris' original railway buildings.

Montmartre - Gare du Nord
In 1857, the inadequacy of the Begian railway platform spurred the planning of the Gare du Nord. This synthesis of Neoclassicism and 19th-century metal structures began service in 1864.
Travellers wait among the cast-iron Corinthian columns that support the glass roof of the Gare du Nord. From this station the TGV services Belgium, Holland, northern Germany, and Scandinavia.

Montmartre - Moulin Rouge
Historic mainstays of Paris' legendary nightlife, the shows at Moulin Rouge (Red Windmill), emphasizing strip routines and sexuality, continue to draw crowds.

Montmartre - Museum of Eroticism
Located in a 19th-century townhouse that was formerly a raunchy cabaret, the Museum of Eroticism is a study in human sexuality. The collection includes art and artifacts from all over the world.
Erotic drawings on the walls of the Museum of Eroticism surround glass cases displaying phallic works of art. This unique museum delves into the primal side of human nature.

Montmartre - Sacré Coeur Basilica
Built between 1875 and 1914 as a monument to the Franco-Prussian war of 1870, Sacré Coeur sits atop Montmartre. One of Paris' most characteristic landmarks, the basilica is a popular tourist site.
Just below the white domes of Sacré Coeur, the Paris skyline stretches into the distance. For a full panoramic view extending for 48km, ascend to the gallery around the basilica's inner dome.
A short walk from Sacré Coeur is the Place du Tertre, a tourist favorite. Get a coffee at one of the cafés that ring the square or wander amongst the maze of tables where artists sell their work.
