AND WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT!
A visit or a private tour of Montmartre starts with the Moulin Rouge cabaret. This world famous theater has housed legends of Paris’ nightlife for dozens of years. From La Goulue Cancan dancer to world stars like Frank Sinatra or Sir Elton John, there is no artist in the world who has not dreamt to perform on this legendary scene of ours!
Next to Moulin Rouge is a line of cabarets, clubs and theaters that animate the area every night. Understanding their role in the French culture is crucial before heading up on the hill, in quest of a more peaceful and quiet atmosphere.
Today Montmartre is visited by over 11 millions every year and guess what, none of them will enjoy the spirit of the neighborhood nor admire its lively streets if not shown around by a local. This is why we will take our time to wander through Lepic, Abbesses and Trois Frères street - the heart of Montmartre today. Our tour will take you off the beaten path to local food markets, to streets with 3 award-winning pastry shops, wine bars and cheese stores.
Artists in Montmartre
But Montmartre is more than just great food and casual wine bars. It’s also about art and finding inspiration. Following our route to the top of the hill, we will discuss the birth of the Impressionist movement, the reason for Van Gogh and Picasso to move in Montmartre, and how the painters’ square has survived till modern days.
Once we have met with these legendary sites, artists and their most famous painting, we will see Montmartre museum, the very place where it all happened. Renoir’s studio, Picasso’s favorite cabaret and enjoy a unique view to Paris’ secret vineyard. This 1700’s country mansion has just been renovated and is part of these places everyone will talk about in the near future.
As we reach the roof of Paris, it will be time to visit Sacre Coeur basilica. This world famous church has become one of the most symbolic landmark of the city. Built as a reconciliation act to unify the French, it now stars in any movie filmed in Paris and embodies the skyline of Paris.
