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.

Well paced and well guided. Maybe a little too much art since there is also an art walking tour but still a good value. I would have liked to spend a little more time in the cemetery.

Our guide was excellent. I understand he is very popular, but wants to spend on his writing. You need more knowledgeable guides like him!

Loved every minute of it, including the hills. Definitely lots of walking, but worth the effort. Our guide, Kit, was great and made the experience that much more enjoyable.

Informative and knowledgeable. Focused on art and artists of the area. Good commentary as we claimed the hill Kit kept people engaged.

We caught the Metro to Montmartre from the Latin Quarter and although the weather was hit and miss, this walking tour, guided by the experienced and knowledgeable Kit, made for a great tour. There are quite a few steps to go up and down but it is not a fast pace and the view from Sacre Coeur worth it.

Gil was our guide and he made the walk very interesting and enjoyable. This is off the path a bit but was a great tour choice.
