What to expect

Wander through the postcard perfect district of Montmartre, home of the Impressionists and cabarets that marked the Belle Epoque period. This walking tour will explore a time when the City of Light sparkled more than ever. Your tour will pair you with one of our enthusiastic young guides who share their favorite stories and personalities that define the Montmartre neighborhood.

Climb the butte or hill of Montmartre, starting at its base where the Moulin Rouge’s windmill still spins slowly and where its girls still kick high each night. Stroll through the cobbled streets and discover the houses of artists like Van Gogh and Picasso who called Montmartre home. Let us introduce you to France’s disco queen Dalida and the artists who still sell their wares on the square.

At the top of the hill, you can enter the gleaming white basilica of Sacré Coeur before taking in breathtaking view of Paris from one of the city’s highest vantage points. Cinema buffs and fans of the film Amélie will feel extra giddy in this district, where much of the movie was filmed. You also have the option of taking an evening tour to catch a sunset over the city if you’re lucky (depending on the season).

Highlights generally include:

  • Moulin Rouge
  • Sacré Coeur Cathedral (with time allowed to explore inside as well)
  • Place Dalida
  • Moulin de la Galette
  • Vincent Van Gogh’s house
  • The Artists’ Square
