WHAT TO EXPECT
Explore the legendary Montmartre district of Paris on a private 2-hour walking tour, and learn how the former suburb outside the city’s jurisdiction went from being a den of iniquity to the fashionable, bohemian center it is today.
Along the way, your personal guide will tell you stories of illegal alcohol and “obscene” Can-Can dancers, show you lavish houses next to run-down slums, and describe the birth of Impressionism in the 19th century.
Uncover its layered history along some of the beautiful – and not so beautiful – streets, stopping at landmark monuments, such as the Metro Blanche (formerly Maison Blanche), Moulin Rouge, and Moulin de la Galette.
