There are some hidden parts of Paris that have not changed for generations. Montmartre is one of them, but you have to know where to go. Away from the crowds, you can still see the Montmartre of Picasso, Toulouse Lautrec and Van Gogh, where artists lived, drank, danced and painted, exchanging their paintings for food and art supplies. Explore tiny alleyways, evocative cobbled streets and quiet squares, and end your tour with a VIP visit to one of the last - and certainly the most beautiful - working vineyards in Paris, closed to the public and opened specially for our small group.
Join an expert local guide and explore the Montmartre of the locals. We will of course show you the famous artists square at the Place du Tertre, and the magnificent Sacré Coeur, sitting high on top of the hill and offering amazing views across the city. But we will also take you to the other side of Montmartre, where the fascinating stories of the iconic artists who lived and worked here and the raucous cabarets and music halls where the French ‘Cancan’ was danced furiously, provide the setting for a lively neighborhood with a charming village atmosphere. You will see the iconic windmills at the Moulin de la Galette, symbol of Montmartre and witnesses to its past as a country village. Your guide will show you cabarets and restaurants made famous by the artists that frequented and also painted them, places where you may like to linger after your tour is over.
Montmartre is also home to the oldest (and probably the most beautiful) vineyard in Paris, the Clos Montmartre. This tour also gives you VIP entry to the vineyard, closed to the general public and only opened for a special few. Take a tour of this charming vineyard, and learn how the wine is made in the local town hall - the only town hall in Paris to have a license to make alcohol! End your tour with a tasting of their hard to come by wine. Only 1750 bottles are made a year, and all proceeds go to support local charities in Montmartre. This is a privileged visit not afforded to many, in the heart of one of the most magical parts of Paris.
At the end of your tour you are free to spend your evening in Montmartre, perhaps on the artists square at Place du Tertre, or in one of the typical bars or restaurants in the area. Your guide will be happy to make recommendations to ensure you spend a perfect Parisian evening.
