Bohemian Montmartre

(1 customer review)

20 

“Ooo la la!” : the one and only expression Montmartre conjures up in the minds of everyone. It was THE place to be, get drunk with absinth in a cabaret or meet the celebrities of the day (Toulouse-Lautrec, the Moulin Rouge sexy dancers…). That’s right, you guessed it, what happens in Montmartre…

2h everyday, max.15 pers, 20€/ pers, 10€ concessions (children, students, unemployed with proof of ID)

Meeting point: Blanche metro station (line 2)

Description

But, believe it or not, there are also secret details that can be found round the corner, fostering another vision than iconic viewpoints, the glamour of the Moulin Rouge and the locations you saw in the movie Amélie. Walk with a local through the non-touristy back streets, the cobblestoned pavements, and Paris’ most renowned vineyard. Combining past legends and modern-day quaint stories, your guide’ll transport you through another universe, to the top of the hill where lies the famous Sacré-Coeur church. Also essential is grasping why the Montmartrois are so proud of their secluded neighbourhood, by roaming over local residents’ eccentric customs, from retaining the best baguettes in town to wearing typical titi parisien outfits.

As if stepping into an Impressionist painting, this tour’ll take you round painters’ studios to walk in the footsteps of Renoir, Van Gogh and Picasso. Montmartre was a shelter for people seeking inspiration, cheap food and low rent.  As you get to experience the real Montmartre, you’ll engage with the artistic past and present of the area, from the Belle Epoque painters to contemporary street artists. This village as if built in the countryside only is a couple of steps away from the sound and fury of the city below.
