Tour description

From Moulin Rouge to Sacre Coeur, discover the hidden beauty of the winding little backstreets of the picturesque Montmartre neighbourhood!
You will see some of the most unexpected spots in Paris:

  • Quiet narrow streets and houses
  • A real wine producing vineyard
  • Actual windmills in Paris

Artist neighborhood 

Walk the beautiful cobblestone streets of Amélie, tracing the footsteps of some of the greatest artists to have called this city their home. 

  • Van Gogh’s apartment 
  • Renoir’s house
  • Picasso’s studio
  • Place du têrtre, the lively painters square

Once a village full of windmills, then became home to wild cabarets, impressionist painters and can-can dancers at the famous Moulin Rouge.
We will finish at the top of the Montmartre hill with the magnificent Sacré-Coeur basilica and a spectacular view over Paris. 

Join us away from the grandeur and crowds of central Paris, you will discover a much more quiet, local neighborhood with a distinct character, local stories and unique identity.

Nice tour. I especially like how she structured the tour to show less touristy areas, and the quiet quaintness of the village. She also had a very nice map with tons of good food options for dinner.
