The real charm of the hill: village, winyard, artists and food.


On this walking tour, I want to show you MY beloved Montmartre hill. . . where I have lived for many years now.

Yes, of course, the top is unmissable, and we will go there, but did you know that there is wine grown in Montmartre? Did you know that the only wild garden of Paris is here too? Amelie's Café, the Moulin Rouge, the last authentic cabaret, Picasso's le Bateau Lavoir, Renoir's house, the cutest lane in the city, Dalida's statue and the last windmills are also on our route. The best baguette and cheese shop of Paris are here, you can also taste macarons and delicious French cakes by local chefs as well on this tour.

Even more interesting are the less touristy neighborhoods at the foot and back of the hill : The very multicultural Château Rouge, the quaint Rue des Abbesses, the "fabrics" area of Marche St Pierre, vibrant Barbes and the "hot" Pigalle. The 18th district is where the French melting pot is best seen.

New : Concierge, Reservation and translation service by phone during your stay in Paris (Exclusively for ToursByLocals clients who book one of my tours).

Estimated Local Cash Needed

10 euros - If you don't want to walk the 222 steps leading to the Basilica, we can ride the historic funicular train for 1.80 euro. You may also want to taste the best bread in Paris there or get a traditional at-the-counter expresso coffee.

What’s Extra

Other: Food, drinks, public transportation if required and funicular.

Restrictions

I can enter museums, taking you to the essential pieces, but I won't give commentary on the art. For that sort of art-focussed tours, I would rather you hired one of my licensed colleagues on ToursByLocal and rather use me for outdoor city walks. Thanks!

A Recent Review of this tour

David was an excellent host and tour guide for Montmartre. He knows his history so well and obviously loves his neighborhood. He was efficient yet caring in his approach to touring. We even got to see his "secret" favorite view of Sacre Coeur. He's a likeable young man and we totally enjoyed our time with him.
