Walk in the footsteps of some of the world’s greatest artist such as Vincent Van Gogh and Pablo Picasso as your surrounded by the beautiful, picturesque bohemian architecture of the district of Montmartre.
This charming artists’ district sits within the 18th arrondissement and borders the Périphérique. Before it became a part of the city of Paris in 1860, Montmartre was a stand-alone village. The area has managed to retain some of its small-town vibe as well as two still-functioning windmills and perhaps most surprisingly, a working vineyard.
Montmartre is home to the Moulin Rouge, one of the world’s most famous cabaret shows; founded and built in 1889.The iconic nightspot has gained legendary status thanks to artist Toulouse-Lautrec’s famous depictions of it and later, Baz Luhrmann’s Oscar-winning movie “Moulin Rouge.” Today, it still retains its unique charm and is still a place of entertainment for guest from all over the world.
Besides the famous cafés and cabarets, the monumental Basilica of Sacré-Coeur boasts the best views of the city and is one of the most romantic parts of Paris. Here you can climb the quiet stairways, peer down narrow alleys onto ivy-clad houses, and watch the world go by.
Because this tour is done outdoors there are no cloakrooms available. This is a walking tour and we recommend that our visitors do not bring big or heavy bags, as they will need to be carried throughout the tour.
Given that Montmartre is a valley-shaped location, the tour goes up and down the hill visiting the most iconic and historical places. Therefore, it is not recommended for people with reduced mobility or walking impediments. The pace of the tour is standard.
