Follow your private guided tour up the butte or hill of Montmartre, starting at its base where the Moulin Rouge’s windmill still spins slowly and where its girls still kick high each night. Wind up the hill and its cobbled streets to discover the houses of artists like Van Gogh and Picasso who called Montmartre home. Let us introduce you to France’s disco queen Dalida and the artists who still sell their wares on the square. At the top of the hill, the gleaming white basilica of Sacré Coeur awaits as well as a breathtaking photo op of Paris from one of the city’s highest vantage points. Cinema buffs and fans of the film Amélie will feel extra giddy in this district, where much of the movie was filmed. You also have the option of taking an evening tour to catch a sunset over the city if you’re lucky (depending on the season).
Highlights Generally Include:
Sacré Coeur Cathedral (with time allowed to explore inside as well)
