3-Hour Walking Tour and Museum Visit (150€ per person, group rates available, entrance fee included)
Our walking tour to Montmartre explores one of the most celebrated cityscapes appreciated for its magnificent views. We start in lower Montmartre at the Place Blanche at the Moulin Rouge, learning how Montmartre emerged as a site for entertainment in the Belle Epoque. As we walk to the top of the hill, we visit the medieval church of St. Pierre de Montmartre, the only remaining vestige of the prosperous women’s monastery founded here in the 12th century. We then explore the controversial Sacre Coeur Basilica, built to redeem Paris from its reputation of easy leisure and lax morals after the Fall of the Second Empire. We conclude with a visit to the Musée de Montmartre and Jardins Renoir, the former home and atelier of Auguste Renoir, where we can admire remains of windmills, vineyards and cottages that once dotted the hill and became subjects of some of the most celebrated Impressionist paintings.
*Special Note: Montmartre is hilly, with stairs and steep inclines, so please inform us of any mobility concerns when submitting your booking form.
