Learn the history of Paris in a fun and different way!

From your hotel, we will take the metro to "Les Puces", the flea market, and walk through different markets, from luxury antique stores to second hand clothes and trendy trinkets and accessories.
This incredible market has a lot to tell about the history of Paris. . . and I will tell you all!
On the way, we will stop for a croissant and expresso, like a true Parisian.
The last market, the most diverse, will allow you to do some unique souvenir shopping should you wish to do so before we hop on a bus to Montmartre!
There we will cover the most iconic sites like the Sacré Coeur and painters' square as well as the more quiet side streets, the vineyard, Picasso's studio, the old mill painted by Renoir, the poetic story of the man who could walk through the walls. . . And I will of course not forget to give you all the best addresses for food and restaurants on the hill. Alors. . . vous êtes partants ?
