Montmartre's Famous Instagram-Worthy Spots

November 06, 2021
Without a doubt, Montmartre is one of Paris's most famous districts. It practically has a life of its own, one that's completely separate from the city's other neighborhoods and shows a different side to Paris altogether. It's no wonder, then, that it's become such a popular tourist hotspot within the French capital. The bohemian base of Paris, Montmartre draws people in with its nostalgic charm, vintage appeal, and liberated vibe. And within the corners of this district, there are a few spots that you won't help but want to capture and post about on Instagram. Here are a few with checking out.

Montmartre's Famous Instagram-Worthy Spots


Sacré-Cœur

The iconic Sacré-Cœur church is practically the defining monument of Montmartre. If the Eiffel Tower is the symbol of Paris (and of France in general), Sacré-Cœur arguably serves the same purpose for Montmartre. When you snap a photo and post it on Instagram, your followers will automatically know that you went to this part of Paris. So, of course, Sacré-Cœur is a must when it comes to Instagram-worth spots in the district. Not to mention the second most famous church in the city after Notre Dame. Even beyond its grandeur, since Sacré-Cœur is one of few that hears English masses, it draws crowds all the time.

Au Cadet de Gascogne

Situated near the Sacré-Cœur, Au Cadet de Gascogne is a striking red-hued brasserie on Place du Tertre. Since it's only a two-minute walk away from the iconic church, it's become a go-to hotspot for those who've visited the site. And it helps that its striking color scheme screams 'Montmartre' even from a mile away. More than just a Parisian restaurant, its picturesque beauty makes it an Instagram-worthy spot in one of the busier parts of Montmartre. You can just imagine how this place would work well as the backdrop of a scene in a Paris-based movie.

Carrousel de Saint-Pierre

On the Place de Saint-Pierre, one of the main squares in the 18th arrondissement of Paris, a colorful carousel serves as the lone symbol of whimsy in this open space. There are a ton of carousels throughout the city, many of which are located in parks and gardens. Yet here is one that's practically surrounded by gravel and concrete, making it the only pop of color in the area. And when you want to take a snapshot of it for Instagram, you can do so at a certain angle that lets you include the famous Sacré-Cœur church in the background. Pretty neat, right?

Rue de l'Abreuvoir

If there's one street in Montmartre that's most famous than any other, it's Rue de l'Abreuvoir. As far as Instagram-worthy spots in the area go, this one arguably takes the cake. The street itself blooms with botanical bliss, lined with trees and vines that practically harken back to the French countryside. In fact, it's that very charm that makes this place so picturesque. The seemingly secret downward cobblestone street has a serenity to it that helps you forget that you're actually in one of the more popular and bustling neighborhoods in Paris. Who wouldn't want to etch such a spot in one's memory? Or in this case, on one's Instagram timeline.

La Maison Rose

Now, while you're already on Rue de l'Abreuvoir, you ought to visit and take a selfie in front of the famous hotspot here, La Maison Rose, a cozy little pink-colored café located along the downward street. If you think it's familiar, you probably saw it from thousands of Instagram posts of those who've visited Montmartre or even when it was featured in countless TV series set in Paris, the most recent of which was 'Emily in Paris.' More than just a great dessert place on a peaceful afternoon, it's a must-see for those who want to see and post about the pretty side of Paris. This will definitely garner a lot of likes!

The Ivy House on Rue de l'Abreuvoir

Another must-see (or in this case, must-post) house on Rue de l'Abreuvoir is the ivy-lined house located at the end of the street. Perched on the crossroads of Rue de l'Abreuvoir and Rue des Saules, it's simply known as 'The Ivy House' in Montmartre. Not much info is known about the said structure and most people visit it for its sheer beauty alone. With its faded red-brick facade covered in rich green ivy vines, the place looks straight out of a romantic French novel, adding to its Instagram-worthy charm. It'd make a great place for a selfie or a couple's photo, that's for sure!

Rue Foyatier

At first glance, the staircase on Rue Foyatier seems like your ordinary path to take when you want to go up and down Montmartre hill. In that respect, it almost seems too boring to belong on this list. But if you've seen your fair share of moves set in Paris, particularly those of the romance genre, you'll know that this staircase (and many more like throughout Paris) serves as a great setting for romantic scenes. In fact, it's because of this movie-borne trope that Rue Foyatier itself has become a must-see spot in Montmartre altogether. An Instagram snapshot of this intimate-looking staircase would prove popular online.

Au Lapin Agile

Although Montmartre's most famous cabaret is undoubtedly the Moulin Rouge, Au Lapin Agile is another worth checking out. From the outside, the place looks almost like a countryside cottage, far from the type of nightlife hotspot that you'd expect in the French capital. Yet, it's exactly this humorous disparity, as well as the intimate setting inside, that makes it one of the best cabarets in Paris. And, of course, one of the most Instagram-worthy spots in Montmartre as well. It's safe to say that you won't find another place like Au Lapin Agile anywhere else in the city!
