Tips and reviews

Here's what Trippy members say about Montmartre:

"I agree with Lorraine and would like to add that you should take some time to explore the neighbourghoods like Montmartre, and not only see the Sacre Coeur Basilica."  See More

"here is more must do: *the The Louvre and Notre Dame Cathedral * Sacred heart Montmartre(amazing and FREE !"  See More

"I stayed in Montmartre close to Sacré-Cœur Basilica."  See More

"I personally think Montmartre is the perfect neighborhood."  See More

"Then there are the tangle of narrow, twisting streets in Montmartre."  See More

"I would go up to Sacré-Cœur Basilica even if seeing a church is not something you want to do as it takes you up through Montmartre a quaint area with artists creating portraits in the square and you can look over city at the top."  See More

"Knowing you'll arrive Gare du nord (North train station), you should stay in this area and visit Montmartre, Canal Saint Martin, Parc des Buttes Chaumont and Belleville."  See More

"Don't forget about Montmartre and Moulin Rouge"  See More

"You've got the right idea. You know how you like to spend your time, so you might as well go where you want, see what you want to see, and suppress those inner voices from friends and family who tell you what you "should" see. Paris is one of my favorite places and I've never tired of revisiting the city, even after my fourteenth visit. Three days in Paris can fly, especially if you like museums and are overcome by the scale and abundance of the The Louvre including the chance to see the Mona Lisa, the Winged Victory of Samothrace, Michelangelo's Slaves, and the Venus de Milo, or the Musée d'Orsay where you can sample an unparalleled collection of Impressionist and post-impressionist painters including Renoir, Monet, Manet, Cezanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, Morisot, and Cassatt, among others. Even if you never climb the Eiffel Tower, it's presence presents itself all over the city. It's possible to get a 906' bird's-eye-view of Paris from the upper level or you could view the it from the 56th floor of Tour Montparnasse. In any case you'll have the chance to see the Eiffel Tower illuminated each evening. The lights glimmer for 5 minutes on the hour. For the price of two bus or Metro tickets (one ticket each direction) you can take the 69 bus which passes many of the most famous Paris sites. You can ride for 90 minutes in either direction, hopping on and off as you wish. I've attached a website that describes the sites that this bus route passes: ."  See More

"Hi Ann Marie! Great itinerary! I think you best bet is to book your accommodation through Airbnb. Some hostels offer private rooms with private bathrooms, but you could find a hotel that is equally priced. In London, you should be able to find an Airbnb very reasonably priced in zone 2. Try around Camden Town, Kings Cross, Greenwich and Stockwell for places that are well connected with central. Basically, anywhere on the Victoria Line, Northern Line, Picadilly Line or Jubilee Line (Underground train lines, aka the tube) will be well connected to New Oxford St, Leicester Square, Westminster, Waterloo Station and London Bridge. This is where all the best attractions are. Check out my blog post for ideas on how to get around, where to eat out, free things to do and day trips you can do from the city. !!"  See More

"Hi Riri, I would rearrange your itinerary as follows: Day 1- Take the Metro to the Palais Royal - Musée du Louvre Metro station and walk over to the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel and then through the Jardin des Tuileries to the Place de la Concorde. The walk down the Champs Elysees Paris to the L'Arc de Triomphe de l'Etoile. If you don't want to walk all the way down the Champs Elysees, you can catch the Metro at either the Franklin D. Roosevelt or Georges V stations and take them to the Charles de Gaulle Étoile station at the Arc de Triomphe. From there, take the Metro to Trocadéro. Hopefully you will be there in the afternoon, when the light on the Eiffel Tower will be the best. Cross over and go up in the Tower. To avoid lines, purchase you tickets in advance at ."  See More

"La Seine river cruise at night, Notre Dame (all day including wandering around Ile Saint-Louis) and Sacré-Cœur Basilica in Montmartre (If you get lucky with relatively warm weather, I recommend doing Montmartre in the late afternoon and night)."  See More

"For my money I might be inclined to stay in the Montmartre area as it's pretty and it is sort of a locals area."  See More

"You should stay close to Sacré-Cœur Basilica, Montmartre."  See More

"I would recommend Belleville which is just outside the 11eme, and thus close to Republique by metro and easy to get around town from there (Republique is a big hub and easy landmark), or Montmartre , which is a personal favorite area of mine anyway because it sits on a hill and has wonderful views over the city!"  See More

"I would spend the rest of my time climbing around Montmartre (Sacre Coeur area), walking through the gardens, finding the best local cafes in town and seeking out a couple of local evening spots."  See More

"Hi Maggie! I love hanging out with friends at Parc des Buttes Chaumont , which is a less touristy park with a beautiful view over Paris, or picnic along the Seine or Canal Saint Martin -- tourists seem to underestimate how simply wonderful and Parisian it is to do so! Les Berges is also a quieter place to hang out"  See More

"As you likely already know walking around Paris is half the fun, and some great destinations include Montmartre, the "little" Statue of Liberty, the Roman ruins below Notre Dame Cathedral and the Musee Rodin (which includes a fantastic garden you can walk)."  See More

"Montmartre , especially the grassy hill in front of the steps of the Sacre Coeur 5."  See More

"We did the The Louvre and the Musée d'Orsay one day (plan and buy tickets to the Louvre ahead of time and arrive right when they open), spent a day at Versailles, and spent another day around the city taking in the Eiffel Tower and Notre-Dame de Paris (both from below, we didn't have time to go up), Champs Elysees, Basilique du Sacre-Coeur in Montmartre, a cruise on the Seine from Pont-Neuf, walking along Pont des Arts, walking by the Moulin Rouge, more wandering and several great meals."  See More

"Spend your time walking around all the great neighborhoods: Montmartre, Quartier Du Marais, the Latin Quarter and Saint-Germain-des-Prés."  See More

"What an amazing European honeymoon! I planned something similar but got stuck in France for 3 months! Amsterdam is such a wonderful and beautiful city! You can get to most places on foot, but you can also explore the city very easily on the trams or a canal boat. For food: eat a traditional Indonesian rijsttafel. Rijsttafel (“ryst-tah-fell”) is Dutch for “rice table” and is a fusion of Indonesian and dutch foods. Try Indrapura on Rembrandtplein. To see: there are 50+ museums! Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, Van Gogh Museum and Anne Frank House are a few of the top ones. For culture: for an authentic beer tasting experience at a micro brewery in a windmill, catch the 22 bus from Central Station to the east of the city (about 10-15mins). Also, walk through the red light district... at night :) It is eye opening and alluring. For romance: See the tulips in bloom if you are there April-June. There are a few fields just outside of the city that are amazing. See more about Amsterdam in my useful guide here:"  See More

"What an exciting trip!! (and congrats on your pending graduations) Be aware that transport and accommodation costs can increase during the summer months in Europe. But it is such a fun time to be travelling here!  If you are looking for a good time, things not to miss in summer in Europe are: at least a few nights on a Mediterranean Sea island or a week long “Sail Croatia” experience hopping the islands in Croatia. There are plenty of tour groups, parties and night clubs perfect for this. Eastern Europe. BudapestPrague and Krakow have great night life, incredible modern history and are still cheap cheap cheap! Berlin is known for its big warehouse style night clubs. I have not been but I hear it is awesome. Do a wine/food tasting trip in either France (somewhere like near Lyon or the Côtes du Rhône region) or Italy (TuscanySicily or Napoli) Check out a European music festival. Open’er in Gdansk, Poland (July), or The Sziget Festival in Budapest, Hungary (August), or BBK Live in Bilbao, Spain (July) If you were looking for scenery check out AustriaSwitzerland and Scandinavia (DenmarkFinlandSweden). If you are looking for culture and history check out Istanbul in Turkey, Madrid in Spain, Budapest in Hungary, Berlin in Germany and Krakow in Poland.  I would skip Belgium completely unless it was a must see on your list... but if you do go Brussels, Delirium bar has one of the largest selections of beer in the world. If I had 5 weeks for my first time in Europe, this is what I would do: > Start in London (3 nights) - go to a big nightclub like Proud Camden or Ministry of Sound. But the sites and pubs are awesome too! If you can, catch the train to Bristol in the UK for a weekend night – great pubs, craft beer and so much cider! (My guide to Bristol: !"  See More
