Get down with some art in Paris
The streets are full of culture with French painters creating masterpieces and caricatures wherever you look on top of the 130-metre high hill.
John Walsh, writing for the New Zealand Herald, is also a fan of the "tremendously arty" area. He said: "It's fantastically hip and groovy, a kind of village on a hillside with lots of clothes shops."
One of, if not the most, impressive sights of Paris' 18th district is the beautiful and superbly sculpted Basilica of the Sacre Coeur building. At night and all lit up it looks stunning, but by day it is arguably even better because you can experience the intricate detail of its construction.
When visiting Paris you really shouldn't be allowed to depart without returning home with a photo of the striking structure and the views that you can get from the top of it the second highest in the city.
Visiting the inside will leave you just as opened-mouthed as the outside, as there are statues of saints in the crypt and the whole building is supported by 80 magnificent columns.
