Montmartre and Sacre Coeur Walking Tour in Paris

Montmartre, Paris

During the late 19th century, Paris’ Montmartre district was the heart of a vibrant artistic scene and a popular gathering spot for many of the Belle Époque’s most brilliant artists and writers. Choose from a midmorning or early afternoon departure, and meet your knowledgeable guide near this legendary district.

Set off through Montmartre’s charming historic streets while your guide shares anecdotes and facts about the area’s famous former residents. Stroll through the picturesque Place du Tertre and wind up the cobblestone lanes of Montmartre’s North Slope to see the house where Vincent van Gogh once lived and worked. 

Pass by the Montmartre Vineyards, one of the last remaining vineyards within Paris, and visit the cemetery where luminaries including Edgar Degas, Emile Zola and Jacques Offenbach are buried. Stop in front of the storied Bateaux-Lavoir apartment building, whose lengthy list of famous former tenants includes Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Amedeo Modigliani and Gertrude Stein. You’ll also see favorite bohemian haunts like the Moulin Rouge and Lapin Agile nightclubs, immortalized in paintings by Picasso and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. 

Your 2-hour walking tour concludes at the steps of the hilltop Sacré Coeur Basilica, where you can take in spectacular city views before bidding farewell to your guide.

Loved this tour!!! Found out after returning home that Degas was buried in the cemetery we visited. This should have been mentioned! Other than that little thing, it was perfect! Planning on doing it again next summer!
