From around the middle of the 19th century to the World War I the slopes of Montmartre used to be the place where artists throve. Toulouse-Lautrec made Montmartre its home and so did Van Gogh, Cezanne, Degas and many others. It was cheap and pretty and it had an abundance of disreputable nightlife. The famouse Moulin Rouge is to be found here. After World War I the area lost its spark and today the area swings between being very touristic during the day and the same shady nightlife during the night. Among many things you'll find here make sure not to miss the Sacre-Coeur church. The views of Paris from its steps make you understand why artists will come here to find their inspiration.
