What You Can Expect
Meet your guide in the Montmartre area to begin your morning walking tour. Your guide will share facts and anecdotes about famous Impressionist painters such as Van Gogh, Monet, Renoir and Cézanne as you explore the bohemian neighborhood that influenced these legendary artists. See the building where Van Gogh lived after moving to Paris from Holland. Walk by the Moulin Rouge cabaret with its iconic windmill and learn how it inspired Toulouse-Lautrec's posters and paintings of the venue.
You'll also see top attractions such as Le Clos Montmartre vineyard and the stunning white Basilique du Sacré-Coeur atop Montmartre, where your 1.5-hour walking tour concludes. Your guide will hand you your skip-the-line ticket to Musée d'Orsay and leave you to marvel at the panoramic views of Paris at your leisure and grab a bite to eat (own expense).
You can use your ticket to Musée d'Orsay during your free time in the afternoon or at a later date. Whenever you choose to visit, bypass the long entry lines and delve right in, admiring the 19th-century art by Impressionist masters in the grand old building, a converted Beaux-Arts train station.
Night Walking Tour (1.5 hours):
On the same day as your morning Montmartre walking tour, enjoy a second walking tour at night. Meet your local guide (who may be different from your earlier guide) at the Louvre Museum. Pose for pictures before the Louvre's distinctive glass pyramid. As you walk around the Louvre's courtyard, listen to your guide talk about the masterpieces such as the Mona Lisa housed inside the massive museum.
See the City of Light in all its illuminated glory as you stroll along a bridge across the Seine River. Admire the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame Cathedral glowing in the darkness.
Continue your tour by going off the beaten track, learning about local hideaways and hotspots most tourists don't know about. Finish your 1.5-hour walking tour in St-Germain, a vibrant, youthful neighborhood with plenty of bars and clubs. Get recommendations from your native guide on where to finish off your night and what to explore during the rest of your time in Paris.
Learned so much from our guide Homaine (?), he had such a great sense of humor making our morning art walk fun. Wear comfortable shoes, lots of cobblestones. Beautiful views, it was a clear day but very cold. It was so nice to have a guide making it so enjoyable. Went to O'ssay after and then did an evening art walk from the Louvre which was also interesting but very cold, afterall it was Christmas and New Years. A full day of art!
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour, taken in September 2014, as it took us to places which we'd never have found had we gone on our own. The Guide had a very evident interest in and comprehensive knowledge of the subject and the district, which really put the relationship between the artists and the places visited into context for us. For those wishing to understand the influence the location and times had upon the Impressionist artists, this tour is highly recommended. Susan and Brian Russell, Queensland, Australia
