Tour description

If there's an alternative to Paris' classy centre, it's Montmartre! Known for its artsy vibe, winding streets, red mills and providing pleasures of both the mind and the body, this iconic location serves the Parisians and the world as both an inspiration... and a warning.

Please note that Montmartre is known for its uphill climbs, it's stairs, and it iconic cobblestone roads! Therefore, it is unfortunately not wheelchair friendly. It is doable with a stroller/pram, but getting up the stairs and navigating the cobblestones will prove to be a challenge for you.

Once a sleepy village located on the slopes of the Martyrs' Mountain, in the late 19th century Montmartre was transformed into the world capital of art. Couple that with a string of bohemian vagabonds settling here, and you've got yourself a mix like none other in the world. Monet, Renoir, Van Gogh, Picasso, Modigliani, Matisse, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec to name just a few - many of them were engulfed in literature, philosophy, painting and... sex, drugs and alcohol. Scandals abound, this place has it all and still draws the unruly among the human kind.

On top of that, literally, there stands the magnificent basilica of Sacré-Coeur. The surrounding streets winding up to it served as a backdrop of countless famous films and series.

Let Montmartre enchant you, like it did to us. On our tour you will see:

  • Moulin Rouge
  • Cafe deux moulins (Cafe known from the film “Amelie”)
  • Van Gogh’s house
  • Moulin d’ la Galette
  • Place des Abbesses
  • ︎Studios Picasso/Modigliani
  • Vineyard/Oldest Cabaret in Paris
  • Sacré Coeur Basilica

Amazing tour: Raj (not sure about the spelling, sorry) is a great guide. He himself lives in Montmartre and provides a super interesting tour with a lot of cultural and artistic information, curiosities and anedocts. He has clearly great knowledge and passion for art and photography which he is really good at conveying and this contributes to make the tour one that you cannot miss
