Small-Group Montmartre Walking Tour: Fine Wines and Famous Artists

Small-Group Montmartre Walking Tour: Fine Wines and Famous Artists

Perched high on a hill overlooking bustling downtown Paris, the village-like area of Montmartre is easily one of Paris’ most-loved neighborhoods. Topped by the beautiful Sacré-Coeur, the area boasts a myriad of cobbled streets thronged by street artists, musicians and traditional crêpe stalls ‘round every twist and turn.

Unsurprisingly, Montmartre is a mecca for creative types, and numerous artists over the years made the area their home. After meeting your guide, learn about some of these legendary French artists while you walk around this vibrant district, seeing the places where they lived, worked and painted.

Hear of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, one of the greatest Post-Impressionist painters of his time, who moved here to study, and Dutch-born Vincent Van Gogh, who found the area to be a treasure trove of subjects to paint. Henri Matisse was another of the area’s legendary residents, who lived here in his early days as a struggling artist.

As your guide talks about the highs and lows of the artists’ lives in Montmartre, weave your way through the streets to reach the Sacré-Coeur. Walk through this 19th-century basilica, admiring its golden mosaics and intricately designed bronze doors, before stopping outside to enjoy the best panoramic views over Paris.

While Montmartre is widely considered to be Paris’ most bohemian neighborhood, it isn’t as well known for its wine! Astonishingly, the area is home to the city’s last surviving vineyard. Learn all about this little-known place while following your guide off the tourist trail and through the doors of two of Paris’s oldest bistros. As you sit down to enjoy a tasting of various fine wines, you’ll be served a plate of charcuterie (cured meats) and learn from your guide about the grape varieties, local soil and wine production of this fascinating enclave of Paris.

We really enjoyed this experience. Alexandra, our guide, was so knowledgeable, interesting and engaged. She took us on a lovely walk through Montmartre with stops at a few cafes for wine tasting at the first we also had a cheese plate and at the second some charcuterie. We learned a lot about the area, the people and about Paris in general. The pace of the tour was also perfect. This was a great way to start our Paris vacation!

Our tour guide was so interesting, giving us a really great insight into the history of Montmatre as well as the wine and food we tasted. She took us to parts of Montmarte we would never have know the history and intrigue of had we not been with her. She really made this tour special.

Alexandra was tres magnifique!!!. She was knowledgeable, charming and fun. The area we visited held so many endearing little secrets that we would never have found without her. She learned of our love of the movie Amelie and she took us to many of the scenes where it was filmed. Fun wine and food on a perfect Paris spring day. Recommended without reservations and most highly!! Ask for Alexandra.

Great tour and a pleasant walk through Montmartre. The guide we had was excellent and very knowledgeable about the area. While Montmartre is hilly the walk was not arduous.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2013

I have been to Paris and Montmartre 4 times and never saw the sites I saw on this trip, the casual tour and cheese and wine stops were special. But most of all as a painter seeing where all the famous artists lived and worked before becoming famous was special. The tour guide ( i wish i could remember her name ) was perfect took time to explain and didn't rush when we wanted to take pictures.

Loved Montmartre...the tour was relaxing and informative. Our guide, Alex, was very knowledgeable and friendly. We had a very private group of four which made it feel even more like a familiar walk through the old neighborhood with friends.
