We stumbled across this lively square only because our considerate Uber driver let us off a block beyond the Basilica du Sacre-Coeur in order to show us a little more of the area, and I'm so glad he did. Place du Tertre exudes a charm...More

Fun for small children but not worth the expense. Save your money and go for a walk. You can not understand the audio over the noise of the traffic.

This little square is famous for the artists lined up on all sides to sell paintings or to draw your portrait or caricature. Actually, watching some in progress, some portraits were quite good. The square also is surrounded by restaurants with indoor and sidewalk seating,...More

It was used to be a very comfortable square to visit, filled with all kind of art stuff. The artists were busy drawing potrets or making silhouette figure by knipping the paper. But now it is full of terrace and the drawers are sitting around...More

Place du Tertre is located very close to Sacre Coeur on Montmartre's d village square. One of the highest points in Paris and is very charming. Many artists flock here to paint portraits for a price. Be aware of overpriced restaurants in this area.

Montmartre
Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colours, and
styles which changes from one street to another. Ride
the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the
steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the
Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The
church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano
bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers
thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy

I do not really know. However, can you not email the town hall and ask them for a list of the artists. Best luck. 0 seconds ago

It's a personal choice, of course. But in December the biggest factor will be the weather. Both the Place du Tertre and the basilica steps will be pretty dreary in the rain. The chances of a stunning sunset are not as... More
