Montmartre is one of the most charming neighborhoods in Paris, and with this walking tour you'll get to see it through the eyes of a local. You’ll then go on to explore the Orsay Museum, which contains artwork from many of Montmartre's most famous former residents, from Renoir to Picasso. Highlights include the Moulin Rouge and the Sacre Coeur Basilica.

What to Expect

Your guide meets you in front of the world-famous Moulin Rouge (metro 2, station Blanche). She explains how this cabaret helped make Montmartre a hotspot for both debauchery and art. Together, you embark up the hill. Weave through the magical streets which enchanted generations of artists. As you discover famous artist's houses and favorite hangouts, your guide shares their stories. She shows you their impressions of Montmartre. She has pictures so you can recognize the paintings up-close on your visit to the Musée d'Orsay.

As you make your way up the hill, your guide points out its ever-evolving street art. You stumble upon secluded secrets such as the only vineyard in Paris. And you feel the presence of the impressionists every step of the way.

The 90-minute tour concludes alongside the gleaming Basilica du Sacré Coeur de Montmartre. Your guide shares the violent history of its creation (hint: there was a revolt). She lingers for a while to answer your questions about where to eat, how to get to the Musée d'Orsay, or anything else! Part ways overlooking the entire city of Paris from a top Montmartre.

You are now well prepared to visit the Musée d'Orsay. Your skip the line access is valid any time after your tour. Having seen Montmartre through the eyes of its artists, you are enchanted by the characters and places you recognize from your visit. Van Gogh and Renoir and Toulouse-Lautrec are now familiar friends. Admire the symbolism of displaying impressionist masterpieces in a beautiful train station.

Highlight of our Paris visit

We found ourselves with a free day in Paris, only to discover it was May 1, Labor Day, and almost all the museums and other attractions were closed for the holiday. Discovery Walks to the rescue. We met up with a dozen or so other...More
