Résumé

There are two competing Little-trains-of-Montmartre to climb the Butte Montmartre: The "Petit train Montmartrain" and "Le Petit train de Montmartre". Hard to tell the difference in name between the two competitors. Both make a detour through "lower Montmartre", stopping at Pigalle, the Moulin Rouge and Place Blanche. However, there's a small difference to be grasped between the two options.

Description complète

The tour is in 2 "independent" parts (but a single combined ticket). Each part can be done at two different times of the day, at your convenience.

  • Place Blanche (departure from the bottom of the Butte, near the Moulin Rouge - metro Blanche line 2) to Place du Tertre (journey time: 15 minutes)

There are 2 departure points: Place Blanche (Métro Blanche line 2, at the bottom of the hill) and Place du Tertre (at the top of the hill, near Sacré Coeur). Your choice of starting points.

Tip: do the tour in 2 parts, with unlimited stopping time (in the same day) at the intermediate stop to visit Montmartre. You can start the tour at the starting point of your choice (e.g. Place Blanche), stay as long as you like on the top of the Butte (leaving the train at Place du Tertre) and take the little Montmartre train in the other direction from Place du Tertre (2nd starting point), returning later in the day to Place Blanche.
