What to expect

Discover the beauty and secrets of the bohemian Montmartre with this 1.5-hour walking tour! You'll learn stories about artists such as Van Gogh, Picasso, Renoir and others.

We'll walk around this amazing neighborhood and find out its secrets, discover the dozens of artists who lived there, painted and changed the area. Back then, the poor artists and poets like Van Gogh, Renoir, Picasso or Toulouse-Lautrec rented rooms in Montmartre, even without light and gas. In the evenings, they had fun in a cabaret, and during the day they were inspired by the beauty of Paris. Dalida, tragically committed her life, lived 25 years in a mansion hidden on a tiny street somewhere between Sacre Coeur and Lepic Street. Learn her love story and touch her bust, for luck in personal life! We will go through the places of the famous cabarets where champagne flows like a river, where the dancers perform an incendiary "can-can". You will discover the world of celebration and debauchery of the late XIX and early XX centuries.

We will find hidden views of Paris, find out where the film “Amelie” was shot and look for where the real artists are hiding. You will discover the history of the word “bistro” and the name “Montmartre” itself.

At the end of the walk, we will visit the Sacre Coeur Basilica, an architectural masterpiece requested by the Parisians to forgive them for shed blood.
