Paris Artistic: Your 2 Hours of the Montmartre (Walking Tour)


Oh, Paris, Paris... the international capital of romance, fashion - and of course art! Explore the abundant artistic history of Montmartre during this outstanding walking tour.
We will meet you just across the street from the most famous cabaret in the world - the Moulin Rouge!

After that, we will start walking down the cobblestone streets while listening to the stories and mysteries of this area of Paris. Like that, we will slowly ascend from the bohemian streets to the highest point in Paris - and here you will enjoy spectacular views in all directions of the city.

During the tour you will be able to see the following places of interest:

Sacré Cœur Basilica:
Located at the highest point in Paris, this white Roman Catholic basilica has dominated the Parisian skyline since 1914. French for "Basilica of the Sacred Heart", it was dedicated to the 58,000 who lost their lives in the Franco-Prussian War.

Moulin Rouge:
French for "Red Windmill", this famed cabaret, immortalized by the works by Toulouse-Lautrec, among others, was built in 1889 (the same year as the Eiffel Tower) by Josep Oller, who also owned the Paris Olympia music hall. It is located in the red-light district of Paris and is marked by the famous red windmill on its roof.

Place du Tertre:
The charming artists' square where works are painted and sold on the spot. The Place du Tertre is a reminder of the time when Montmartre was truly the artists' quarter of Paris.

Dalí Museum:
Dedicated to the work of the surrealist artist Salvador Dalí, this museum contains over 300 of Salvador Dali's original drawings, cartoons, sculptures as well as a few of his pointing.

The Montmartre Vineyards:
One of the most secret gardens in Paris is an authentic Parisian vineyard and source of the famed Le Clos Montmartre.

Montmartre Cemetery:
A popular tourist destination, it is the final resting place for many famous artists who lived and worked in the Montmartre area, such as Dalida, Edgar Degas, Adolf Sax, Emile Zola and Jacques Offenbach.

Le Lapin Agile:
French for "The Nimble Rabbit", the famous haunt of the resident artists of Montmartre in the early 1900's. Pablo Picasso's 1905 oil painting "At the Lapin Agile" helped to make this cabaret world famous.

Bateaux Lavoir:
Le Bateau-Lavoir was a dingy block of buildings in Montmartre. It became famous because at the turn of the 20th century a group of outstanding artists lived and rented artistic studios there, the most famous being Pablo Picasso.

Famous Windmills:
In the past, Montmartre was covered in windmills. Three of the original fourteen windmills remain today. They helped Parisians determine the direction of the wind each hour and served to break down materials from the factories.
