Tour description

With a university degree in Art History, I suggest, unlike the rest of the tours in this area, to visit two neighborhoods instead of just one, the Pigalle neighborhood (Red Light District) and the Montmattre neighborhood of the artists.

We'll start in the 9th district of Pigalle , at Saint Georges Square , to learn about the history of a neighborhood that reached its peak with romantic artists. In this square we will see the beautiful Paiva Palace , one of the most famous courtesans of the time, the Gavarni Monument and the Dosne-Thiers Palace . We will go to the street where the famous Le Chat Noir cabaret was opened and where the beautiful building that housed a Maison Close (brothel) is located. We will walk along the Boulevard de Clichy to see the Baths of Pigalle and the Moulin Rouge.
we will start the ascent to Montmartre , 18th arrondissement, via rue Lepic , one of the most famous streets in the neighborhood to see the café where the movie Amelie was shot. We will visit the beautiful Place des Abbesses to see the Wall of Love, the Saint Jean church and the beautiful metro exit. We will see the Bateau-Lavoir residence, where Picasso lived among many other artists, the Galette Mill and the statue of the martyr Saint Denis and thus learn about its history. We will pass by the square and the house where the famous French singer Dalila lived, and we will cross the charming Place de Tertre, painters' square, we will see the Church of Saint Pierre, the second oldest in Paris, and we will end at the Sacre Coeur Basilica .

With this tour I intend to transmit my knowledge and my love for these two bohemian neighborhoods full of magic, so that you can learn about their history, their secrets and anecdotes.
