What to expect

Still undoubtedly, authentically Parisian, there are hidden parts of Montmartre that remain unchanged for generations. But to truly find these rare gems, you have to know where to go. Your local, expert guide is just the person to take you on a tour of the area’s little-known nooks and crannies. Away from the crowd, beyond the throngs of tourists who only know Montmartre for its main attraction: the Sacré Coeur, sitting high atop the hill.

Follow your guide to the Montmartre of Picasso, Modigliani and Utrillo, where these famous artists lived and were inspired, whether through drink, dance, decadence or debauchery. See the places where priceless works of art were exchanged for meager food and art supplies by these beginning “starving artists” – not yet knowing how profound their work would be and what an indelible mark their paint strokes would leave on the art world.

Walk upon cobble-stone streets and through quiet squares as your guide, truly passionate about Paris and art history, entertains you with stories of the past.

Take pictures before the two famous remaining windmills of the Moulin de la Galette and the Moulin Rouge. Then pass by the tiny cabarets and iconic restaurants which undoubtedly inspired an artist or two, in turn capturing them forever on canvas.

See the famous artists’ square, and the Sacré Coeur – dominating the hilltop and standing vividly against the bright blue sky. Stand in awe, here, before the most incredible sweeping view of the city, a breathtaking site worth the visit alone. Then see various locations where the hit 2001 movie Amélie was filmed, including the café where the beloved character of Amelie Poulain worked.

See why Montmartre is known as home to the most beautiful vineyard in Paris, the Clos Montmartre, where wine has been made for centuries (and continues to be - in the local town hall!) This is a picturesque corner of French countryside within one of the city’s most interesting and historic quarters.
