Paris - Montmartre & Northern Paris (PDF Chapter)
This is the Montmartre & Northern Paris chapter from Lonely Planet’s Paris guidebook.
One of the wellsprings of Parisian myth, Montmartre has always stood apart. Bohemians, revolutionaries, artists, cancan girls and headless martyrs have all played a role in its story, and vestiges of the original village – ivy-clad buildings, steep narrow streets – remain.
