Montmartre is only worthwhile visiting to see the Basilica of Sacré Coeur and the panoramic views of Paris. Place du Tèrtre with its artists and restaurants is usually so crowded with people that it is difficult to walk around.

Nevertheless we took the Métro to Place du Clichy and walked up the hill across the bridge and past the cemetery where Victor Hugo is buried. The destination of most tourists is up the many stairs to the Place du Tertre where we stopped for a short while and had a very expensive coffee before walking on to see the Basilica of the Sacré Coeur and the view of Paris from the 'parvis' in front of the basilica. From there we descended the steps next to the funicular to catch the train at Abesses to return to St Michel.

There are many places in Paris which warrant a day out and Montmartre is not one of them.
