Description

Avoid the crowded landmarks and explore the charming streets of Montmartre on a guided shared group or private walking tour. Learn about the rich artistic history of the area as you discover hidden landmarks, local shops, charming squares, and former residences of famous figures. Begin the tour by meeting your guide at a quintessential Parisian landmark: the Moulin Rouge windmill. Start your climb up the hill of Montmartre, spotting the café where the film Amélie was shot and a former home of Vincent Van Gogh. Make your first stop at one of Paris’ best bakers, winner of many prestigious prizes for its bread and pastries. Taste a delicious freshly baked butter croissant, a staple of any French patisserie. After learning how to say “Je t’aime” in 250 different languages at the Wall of Love, climb some more stairs to discover one of Montmartre’s prettiest squares and the one-time home of Pablo Picasso. Hear the stories of the struggle endured by many local artists before they found fame and fortune.  From here, pass by the house of Dalida, one of France’s most beloved singers and an iconic figure in Montmartre. Find out more about her dramatic life, and why she became an icon for the gay community in Paris and beyond. You’ll also spot one of the last remaining windmills in Paris. Continue down the “Champs-Élysées” of Montmartre, where you’ll see some of the most expensive houses in the capital. Your guide will then lead you through a secret passage that reveals not only one of the best views over Paris but also one of the most beautiful cobbled streets in the city. Next up are the famous vineyards of Montmartre, located near the top of the hill. Opposite the vineyard see the entrance to the famous Cabaret, Le Lapin Agile, where your guide will tell you the legend of Lolo, the painting donkey. Finally, stroll to the iconic Basilica Sacré-Coeur, and admire the church from a perspective that very few tourists know about, before the grand finale of another stunning Paris panorama. Before you go, don’t forget to ask your guide about the latest on what to see and do during your stay in Paris.
