What You'll Do
  • Discover and explore Paris on a little-known tour
  • Take an opportunity to step back in time to the very height of French Romanticism at the beginning of the 19th century
  • Explore a series of residential buildings whose distinctive architecture you are sure to find charming
Overview
Tour Paris' 9th arrondissement and explore the distinctly atypical quarter where Parisian Romanticism first began.
What to Expect
Located around Rue Notre Dame de Lorette, Rue Blanche and Rue la Bruyère, this little district, though largely-unknown to tourists, actually neighbours Montmartre, which rises up above it. Built between 1820 and 1860, the area consists of an assortment of residential buildings of similar shape and size whose distinctive architecture – which some consider classically inspired – you are bound to find charming. Relive the artistic Paris of the 19th century in a quarter associated with such illustrious names as Eugène Delacroix, who had his first studio here, Chopin, whose former apartment is also located here, and Gaugin.

A knowledgeable, urbanite city guide will take you to see the hidden little places that played such a key role in establishing the reputation of the French Romantic school.

This tour of this calm and peaceful Parisian quarter will transport you back to the time of artists who, not so very long ago, first breathed life into this area.
