Explore the Montmartre neighborhood in Paris and discover a district that typifies all things quintessentially Parisian, from terrace cafés to romping bars and clubs, and saucy can-can dancers to bourgeois apartments and narrow cobblestone streets.
What to Expect
Begin your 2-hour tour of Montmartre at the infamous Moulin Rouge. From here, you will move up the hill to see artist studios, statues of pop stars, and the church that is located at the highest point of Paris, the fabulous white wedding cake of the Sacré Coeur.
Discover what made Vincent Van Gogh, Toulouse Lautrec, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, and Salvador Dali all want to call this eclectic district home. The tour covers all the major sites that make it famous, including the bohemian Artists' Square, Montmartre Vineyard – the last authentic vineyard in Paris – Van Gogh’s House, Café des Deux Moulins (recognizable from the movie Amélie), and the last windmill left standing in Paris.
Wander through Paris’s Red Light District, see Picasso's former studio, and listen to fantastic anecdotes, such as the legend of Paris' first bishop, the headless Saint Denis.
Discover Renoir's world-famous paintings, Bal au Moulin de la Galette, and pass by La Place Dalida, dedicated to one of Paris' most famous gay icons and the cabaret bar where Picasso often exchanged paintings for food.
Meet your guide at Blanche metro station, Paris.
What to Remember
The tour does not enter any museums or specific sites, as this would lengthen the tour and disrupt the flow of information.
