Join up with your guide and a group that caps out at eight people at a central Montmartre location.
Begin with the world’s most iconic cabaret: the Moulin Rouge, whose feisty French dances—including the cancan—inspired generations of painters. Montmartre is still a lively community, and your local guide shows you the best of the quarter’s cafes, shops, and hidden street art as you discover landmarks such as Au Lapin Agile, Picasso’s favorite hangout.
Listen to stories from the unruly golden age of Paris’s bohemian artists as you walk past the former residences of Van Gogh and Renoir, once fixtures in the neighborhood.
You conclude your tour at the spectacular Place du Tertre, still home to a large community of outdoor artists. Admire the ornate exterior of the Basilique du Sacré-Coeur while you gaze at a panorama of the legendary French capital.
