Overview

Montmartre is a unique place in Paris, a village within the city. It was a sacred hill even before the Roman times and home of the poorest and most brilliant painters at the end of the 19th century. With an altitude of 130m, it is located in Paris’ highest ground and offers a stunning panoramic view of the rest of the city! You start this Montmartre walking tour by Meeting your welcomer at Place Blanche. This little part of the 18th district was a refuge of poets and pariahs through the 19th century and became today the hub of hipsters.

As you go away from the busy streets, the hill can feel like another world. With a relaxing atmosphere and a lot more nature, it embraces public and private gardens, ivy-covered walls, flowerpots lining balconies and, most importantly, the Sacre-Coeur Basilica. A mind-blowing church that you’ll be visiting from the inside.

There is even a vineyard here, the Clos-Montmartre, in which your welcomer will share some interesting facts. Facing the vineyard is the Lapin Agile cabaret, one whose artistic history will fascinate you!

As you stroll accross Montmartre and pass throught Place du Tertre, you will reach the last remaining windmills of Paris. Their number decreased, as they were not very efficient since Paris can only boast of having a hundred windy days a year…

It is time for the historical phenomenon in Montmartre: the Moulin Rouge cabaret’s French Cancan. Paris had the reputation of being a city of pleasure and danger. Baz Lurhmann’s movie “Moulin Rouge!”, starring Nicole Kidman, depicts this spectacle of French moral freedom, which people are still fascinated by. How did Paris become this way? Why Parisians came to seek oblivion in pleasure? Revelations on their way!

Pleasure was certainly not a daily program for artists who participated in the painful birth of modern art. You will see, from the outside, one of these birthplaces: Bateau-Lavoir workshops. Montmartre’s famous artists came from every part of the world to this workspace, chasing their dreams. One of these artists is Pablo Picasso!

    Fantastic personalised tour of Montmartre!!! I have been living in Paris for 5 years and been to Montmartre several times but on this 4 hours walking tour with Emmanuel I saw places I had never seen before, including a great picture spot of Sacre Coeur. Emmanuel, our multi lingual tour guide told us interesting historical anecdotes, decoded graffiti language I didn’t even know existed! Absolutely overall great experience.
