Walking through Montmartre feels like walking through a film set of Paris. On this 2.5-hour tour, your expert local guide will introduce you to the sights, the sounds and the famous characters who have called Montmartre home.
Your Montmartre Walking Tour meets at the Starbucks outside Metro Blanche (metro line 2) and finishes by the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris.
All things quintessentially Parisian
Montmartre typifies all things quintessentially Parisian, from terrace cafes to romping bars and clubs, drunken can-can dancers to budding street artists and performers, bourgeois-bohemian apartments to tiny cobblestone streets. Your walking tour guide will take you to sites like the infamous Moulin Rouge, Paris’s last surviving windmill and vineyard, and to the stunning Sacre Coeur, with its incredible views over Paris.
Meet some of Montmartre’s most famous characters
While you’re busy snapping pictures of some of Paris’ impressive landmarks, you’ll want to keep your ears open, as your tour guide tells you about all the incredible characters who have called Paris home. Walk up to Vincent van Gogh’s house, see Picasso’s studio (and the cabaret bar where he exchanged paintings for food) and hear why other artists from Dalí to Monet called Montmartre home. Hear the incredible legend of Paris’s first bishop, headless Saint Denis, discover Paris’s Red Light District, and see major sites from the hit film Amelie.
Join in for a drink at a local bar after the tour!
It wouldn’t be a visit to Montmartre without a glass of wine after the tour. Your Montmartre walking tour guide will point out some of their favorite local bars in the area, and if they don’t have another tour to get to, may even join you for a drink!
