What's in our tour?
On this free Montmartre walking tour, you will run into all the romance that Paris stands for.
You will explore Paris’ most bohemian, artistic district. You will discover the picturesque streets that inspired Renoir, Picasso, and Edith Piaf. You will photograph some of the best vistas of Paris. And in the end, you will feel very Parisian.
The itinerary covers Moulin Rouge to Sacre Coeur cathedral. We make our way up through secluded gardens and back alleyways. We explore the eccentric lifestyles of current and former Montmartre residents. We discover why local residents are so proud of their peculiar vineyard.
We run into countless photo opps. And we enjoy the romance of Montmartre. We end at Sacre Coeur, with the best views of Paris lying at our feet.
So we can see more, we do not spend time going inside each building.
- Moulin Rouge, Chat noir and the cabaret of the Assassins
- Sacre coeur church and artists’ square – icon of Bohemian Paris
- The extravagant home of eccentric pop singer Dalida – and what it means to French pop culture
- Windmills, vineyards and Paris’ most celebrated 180° view
