We went on a Wednesday, so what I saw may not be a good representation of other days. The center was filled with artists who sketch people. We were hoping to see paintings (oil, water, or acrylic). As we walked through the center, we were...More
Not many people here in early March. Have been here in late may and it's in full "bloom". Square below Sacre Coure filled with artists at "stands" along with wanderers. Paintings for sale, as well as portraits done. Some of the portraitists quite good. It's...More
A small town square situated between the Sacre-Coeur and the Dali museum in the Montmartre area of the city.
The area hosts artists at work with their paintings being being displayed and sold on the street. The artists also offer to do portraits and charecatures...More
As it was my first trip to the centre of Paris, I just had to go! I may not go again as it is touristy and small, as it's only a square, but there's a nice atmosphere and good cafes, no they're not cheap but...More
Since I can't go back in time, I had to enjoy Place du Tertre as it is now. Even on a Tuesday afternoon in November it was bustling. The square was full of amateur artists hocking their masterpieces. Some were busy creating their new work...More
Place du Tertre is in a lovely and historic part of Paris. The area has become very touristy but you can still sense what the area use to be like. Mentally cut through the commercialism of the area and enjoy the views, history and atmosphere.
If you are interested in having your portrait sketched or are interested in buying some cheap trinkets or second rate art, this is the place for you. Otherwise visit Sacre Couer and avoid this poor imitation of what was.
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
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 great as in the summer, of course, but the view over the city is there all day. So I'd pick my time according to the weather and the clarity of the view. Tourists will be at both venues all day every day.
FORTUNATELY, we went on a sunday and i was under the impresion THAT THEY ONLY ALL CAME OUT IN FORCE ON A SUNDAY. I would make doubly sure by contacting the paris tourist board and confirm they do work during the week the... More
FORTUNATELY, we went on a sunday and i was under the impresion THAT THEY ONLY ALL CAME OUT IN FORCE ON A SUNDAY. I would make doubly sure by contacting the paris tourist board and confirm they do work during the week the artists are all there by 1-00 AND IF YOU GO ON THE SUNDAY AND IT IS A NICE DAY GO AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE BY 12-00 OCLOCK THE PLACE IS HEAVING.
ALSO WE had a portrait done and we werent happy with it, so look around first before you choose.
YOULL LOVE MONMARTRE HAVE A GREAT TIME
