Walking Tour

DESCRIPTION :

Montmartre district offers many surprises to those who visit it. With your audio guide (an audiopen and a map), you will visit the impressive Sacré Coeur basilica at your own pace. You will admire its eclectic architecture and walk through the picturesque streets of this charming neighborhood. This getaway will allow you to learn about the history of this emblematic place and to admire a unique panorama over the city. The comments will make you discover the origin of the district, its history and its characteristics which still attract artists, Parisian, pilgrims and tourists.

You will be invited to come to our kiosque located at Anvers subway station to pick up your audio guide, for a visit of Montmartre district on your own. Equipped with a map and an audio pen, the comments will start from the departure point and will take you to discover the tiny village of Montmartre. You will take the bustling street that will lead you at the bottom of Montmartre hill. You will then have the choice of taking the funicular (not included) or climbing the steps to go to the top of the mountain. The second option will allow you to contemplate the view by stopping on the way.

Once at the top, you will admire the exceptional view over Paris. All the great Parisian monuments – apart the hidden Eiffel Tower – are here in front of you: the Montparnasse Tower, the Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Invalides, the Georges Pompidou center and many others.

You will then enter in the Basilica whose complexe history of its construction will be told to you. Today, the Sacre Coeur is a world-famous place of pilgrimage and contemplation. While respecting the silence required inside a spiritual place, you will follow the side aisles where you will find small chapels, you will admire the mosaic over the altar and you will be immersed in a mystic atmosphere thanks to the many candles arranged everywhere. You will contemplate the organs placed above the central portal and the stunning stained-glass windows renovated after the WWII bombings. Below your head stands the dome overhanging the cupola that dominate the basilica. You will also be able, if you want to, to access by the exterior, which will allow you to have a breathtaking view. You will walk to the choir and take the stairs to visit the crypt. This underground church retains many statues as the Saint Denis holding his head in his arms, and the chapel of the Pietà. Before leaving the edifice, you will contemplate the beautiful Virgin chapel whose colors and stained glasses windows give it a particular light.

You will then go discovering the soul of the typical district of Montmartre. You will pass in front of Saint Jean de Montmartre church before going to the famous Place du Tertre. All the animation is concentrated on this place where restaurants and artists give their best to welcome you. Through your walk, you will go all over the picturesque and cobbled streets that make the charm of Montmartre. You will discover how much this district symbolizes the bohemian of Paris where many painters lived such as Van Gogh, Picasso or Renoir. It is still an artistic inspiration great source. You will pass in front of the famous Cabaret of the “Lapin Agile” which was the meeting place of many artists and writers. You will walk to the unavoidable vineyards of Montmartre which gives a wine recognized by oenologists.
