Europe has no lack of Picasso museums, but the Musée Picasso in Paris should be at the top of your list. The Hotel Salé, a mid-17th-century home in Le Marais, was renovated from residence to museum, starting in 1968, and since then has ...

Marion, our guide, gave us many intersting stories as we trekked through Monmartre by foot. Don't do this unless you are used to walking uphill. Part of the tour included going by Dalida- an Egytian singer's home; St. Denis' statue; an ancient vineyard; and a path bordering a philosopher's home which have nothing to do with Impressionist art. We were shown a street leading to Van Gogh's home but did not go there. We sldo stopped outside the studio where Picasso worked and lived for a time. we ended at the top of the hill at Sacre Coeur. The trickets to the Musee d'Orsay was great but only had 2 hours there by the time we took the Metro there.

A great day out. For me the highlight was the canal trip. But I also found two unexpected treats - exhibitions by Picasso and others, and another one by Dali. Fabulous. I hate to be a killjoy - but you are not buying Belgian hand-made lace at such prices. The majority comes from China. It is still hand-made. And you bought it in Belgium.

Gil was great-he not only showed the historical spots where Renoir painted several of his masterpieces as well as where Braque and Picasso lived. But he also showed us examples of current street art and told us about the street art scene. Very informative.

A nice contrast to the downtown tourist areas, even if you're not interested in Picasso's misbehavior.

A wonderful afternoon was had on this tour of Montmartre with our wonderful tour guide. She was friendly and informative. She gave us plenty of time to climb the steep streets of Montmartre and explained so much about the culture of this area of Paris especially at the start of the 20th century. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone who would like to learn more of the cultural side of Paris and see where famous painters such as Picasso lived and worked. The tour concluded at Sacre Coeur at the top of Montmartre, where we could then choose to stay as little or as long as we liked. The guide supplied us with a map to show us how to get to where we wanted to go following Sacre Coeur. This was one of the highlights of our European trip.

Excellent, entertaining, and informative tour. The insight into the various personalities who have graced Montmartre with their presence over the years was great, particularly the artists, such as Picasso, Braque, Modigliani, and of course Toulouse-Lautrec. The duration of the course was just about right.
