Tour Description

Away from the crowds, you can still find the Montmartre of Picasso, Toulouse Lautrec and Van Gogh, where artists lived, drank, danced and painted, exchanging their paintings for food and art supplies. We’ll explore tiny alleyways, evocative cobbled streets and quiet squares on this live online tour. Let our expert guide show you the real Montmartre – one of the best-kept secrets in the city. 

We will of course show you the famous artist’s 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 fascinating stories of the artists who lived and worked here, and the raucous cabarets and music halls where the French ‘Cancan’ was invented and danced wildly, provide the setting for a lively neighborhood with a charming village atmosphere. 

We will see the iconic windmills at the Moulin de la Galette, symbol of Montmartre and witnesses to its past as a country village. We’ll also show you the cabarets and restaurants made famous by the artists that frequented and painted them, and a beautiful working vineyard – the hill of Montmartre was once covered with vines. Today the wine is still produced here (in the local town hall!) The harvest festival takes place each year in October and a huge party is held to celebrate.

Today Montmartre remains a delightful and typical quarter of Paris, proud of its history and inhabited by Parisians who remain passionate about their unique neighborhood. Join us for a live exploration of Montmartre past and present, and discover a very special part of Paris. Don’t hesitate to ask any questions, we’re happy to provide you some insider tips and recommendations for your next trip!
