Discover Montmartre and Les Abbesses, their ephemeral art and the steps and mazes of narrow streets, not to mention the trail of the artists who have made this place famous.
What to Expect
Located in the 18th arrondissement, at the top of Montmartre hill, the district of Les Abbesses has an iconic status in the Parisian imagination. Made famous by painters such as Picasso and more recently by the film Amelie, this district remains one of the liveliest in the capital. The route recommended is organised around items of cultural, historic and artistic interest.
Your city guide will take you around "Le Lapin Agile", the cabaret cafe that was the meeting place of writers and painters, and you will also explore the Place du Tertre that used to be the centre of the old village of Montmartre. A quarter that is historically linked to the Commune de Paris, this excursion will also be an opportunity to revisit some of the insurgencies to which the Sacre Coeur was built as a memorial.
