Our tour of fantastic Montmartre begins just outside metro station Blanche, opposite a quintessential Parisian landmark: the Moulin Rouge cabaret. We start the climb up the hill, spotting the café where the film Amélie was shot and Van Gogh’s home as we go.
Our first stop is at one of Paris’ best bakers, winner of many prestigious prizes for its bread and pastries. Here, we taste one of France’s most famous pâtisseries: a deliciously buttery croissant. Is there any better way to start your morning in Paris? After learning how to say “je t’aime” in 250 different languages and listening to the crazy legend about the first Parisian bishop, we climb a few more stairs to discover one of Montmartre’s loveliest squares and the one-time home of Pablo Picasso. Hear the stories of struggle endured by many local artists here before they found fame and fortune.
From here we pass by the house of Dalida, one of France’s most famous singers and an iconic figure in Montmartre. Find out more about her dramatic life and why she became an icon for the gay community in Paris and beyond.
We then pass by one of the last remaining windmills in Paris, now totally privatized, then we promenade down the “Champs-Élysées” of Montmartre, where we see some of the most expensive houses in the capital. Your guide then leads you through a totally secret passage that reveals not only one of the best views over Paris but also one of the cutest cobbled streets in the city!
Next up are the famous vineyards of Montmartre. Almost on the top of the hill, they overlook the suburbs of Paris and produce a surprisingly good red wine. Opposite the vineyard is the entrance to the famous Cabaret, Le Lapin Agile, where your guide tells you the legend of Lolo, the painting donkey.
Finally, we walk to the iconic Basilica Sacré-Coeur, where we stop to admire a view of the church from a perspective that very few tourists know about, leading onto our grand finale of another stunning Paris panorama.
