1. Go to a local art market
In Montmartre, only a few streets from the Sacre-Coeur, you can find a small square here where several artists are displaying their paintings. It is called "place du tertre". From the end of the 18th century, a lot of famous painters, poets, and songwriters could be seen here.
2. Visit the Paris covered passages
Paris is home to several covered passages where boutique shops can be found, as well as some local restaurants. Some of the most beautiful ones are: Passage des Panoramas, Galerie Vivienne, and Passage Jouffroy! The one on the photo below is Passage des Panoramas.
3. Do a photoshoot in Paris

4. The green walkway
The "Coulée verte René-Dumont" is a public park that was built along a former railway on a viaduct, making the whole park an elevated line that you can walk along. It has a length of 4.7 km / 2.9 mi. Fun fact: The High Line park in New York City was inspired on this park in Paris. You can visit this for free!
5. Petit palais
This is a free museum of fine art and the building looks beautiful! I would highly recommend going to this museum during your city trip in Paris, because the art is just so beautiful and museums are always a great way to spend your time in a city!
6. Go inside the Sacre-Coeur
Montmartre is just amazing. The most famous building certainly is Sacre-coeur. You can enter for free (you may have to wait a bit, as a lot of people want to get in for free).
7. Take a free walking tour
There are so many great neighbourhoods in Paris, and a lot of them come with a free walking tour where tipping is recommended. Go, for example, to Montmartre and discover specific history and culture there, or walk through le Marais. On this page you can find several options.
