What happened to all the windmills? Which of the post-Impressionist painters had a cane filled with absinthe? What do you mean Montmartre wasn’t even originally Paris? Find the answers to these and other questions during our walking tour of Montmartre, home of bohemian artists and birthplace of the Belle Époque period!
Our tours are always small—no more than 8 people per group—so you can enjoy a truly intimate journey through one of Paris’s most exciting neighborhoods. Your tour will start by the Moulin Rouge, and as you wind your way up the cobbled streets, one of our passionate guides will describe the origins and artistic inhabitants of the area. You’ll visit the homes of painters like Van Gogh and Picasso, learn about France’s disco queen Dalida, see the cafe where the movie Amélie was filmed and admire the wares of the many artists working here today. At the top of the hill, you’ll explore the gleaming white Sacré Coeur Cathedral and take in the breathtaking view of the city. Join us for an evening tour if you’d like to watch the sunset (depending on the season)!
Highlights Generally Include:
Moulin Rouge, where the cancan was invented
Sacré Coeur Cathedral (with time to go inside), best view of the city
Place Dalida, the disco queen of France
Van Gogh’s house, ear not included
I really enjoyed walking through the side streets of the Montmartre District and learning the history of the area. It was a great tour! I loved the small group. It was leisurely enough to stop and take pictures and enjoy the ambiance.
We had a fun walking tour of Montmartre. The tour was supposed to be for a small group, but we got lucky and there were only 3 of us!! Our guide was great and she walked us through the area. I highly recommend the Babylon Tours group.
MONTMARTRE: Small Group Guided Tour - Moulin Rouge to the Sacré-Coeur was a great walking tour. Our guide Carolena was so very nice and knowledgeable about the area. She had a few visual aides she showed as the tour was progressing regarding certain artists or certain buildings in the area. She showed many highlights like the restaurant from the movie 'Amelie' and talked about all the different artists that lived there and there were even some interesting legends about lesser known people in the neighborhood that made for great stories. Be prepared as the walk is hilly and steep in places and the streets are slightly uneven with stones but this is definitely worth it! I was extremely glad that the company did not cancel as there were only 2 of us on the tour. Highly recommend as the church and view at the top is unmistakably beautiful!
Bellen was absolutely wonderful on our tour of Montmartre! Lily was fantastic on our tour of Notre Dame. Each of the ladies were very knowledgeable. They kept our tour moving at the right pace. Easy to understand. Highly recommend Babylon tours!!!
We loved our walking tour with CHRISTINE of the awesome area of MontMatre (Paris) where the Sacre Coeur is located ON April 14, 2017. Christine was so friendly and so tuned in to what we would enjoy and she made is special for us. She gave us just enough historical background to make things interesting and meaningful. She took us to see windy streets & unusual architectural sights. We loved it!! I would rate the tour with CHRISTINE A 5 STAR! Joyce & Daryl Deering, USA
