Explore Montmartre on a 2-hour walking tour of the historic Paris neighborhood and walk in the footsteps of Van Gogh, Picasso and more. Discover a more local side to the city and see landmark monuments such as the Moulin Rouge, Sacré Coeur and more.
What to Expect
Go back in time and discover the historic Montmartre district of Paris like a local, getting off the usual tourist paths to stroll down streets that were once frequented by Van Gogh, Picasso, Dali and more.
You will start at the Moulin Rouge cabaret, where French cancan shows still attract crowds. Continue uphill to Rue Lepic to see the Café des Deux Moulins, featured in the hit film “Amélie.” Head to Place des Abesses to see the lesser-known, but historically significant, Saint-Pierre Church (“Our Lady of the Bricks”).
Next is the Bateau-Lavoir building, where Picasso, Cocteau and Modigliani conceived some of their masterpieces. Stroll to the Moulin de la Galette, the last windmill in Paris, and continue to the peaceful Place Marcel Aymé, named after a famous French children’s author.
Discover the last remaining working vineyard in Paris, and taste some of the wine in a café near Place du Tertre. A final highlight is the iconic Sacre-Coeur Basilica, where you will get breathtaking views of the city below. Descend the Butte of Montmartre via Place Louise Michel, passing the vintage stores of the Rue des Martyrs, to end in the Pigalle, epicenter of Parisian nightlife.
