Meet your guide in Montmartre, in front of the Moulin Rouge, and set off on your 1.5-hour walking tour around the neighborhood. As you stroll through the streets, weaving past must-see highlights like Le Clos Montmartre vineyard, hear tales of the legendary artists who have called the area home. Focusing on Paris’ Impressionist painters, your guide will talk you through the lives and works of Renoir, Monet, Van Gogh and Cézanne.
See the venues that influenced their art, like the building where Van Gogh lived when he moved here from Holland. Van Gogh lovers believe it was here that he really found his personality as an artist. Visit the Montmartre windmill that Renoir featured in his scandalous masterpiece Bal du moulin de la Galette, and walk past the Moulin Rouge cabaret that inspired Toulouse-Lautrec’s distinctive style of painting.
After 1.5 hours of strolling around Montmartre, head to the Basilique du Sacré-Coeur to admire the spectacular view over Paris with your guide. This is where your tour finishes and before leaving, your guide will hand over your skip-the-line ticket to Musée d’Orsay, Paris’ famous Impressionist museum that you can visit independently.
Your guide will give you directions if you want to visit Musée d’Orsay straight away, or you can use your ticket to visit on another day of your choice. The former train station now holds Paris’ largest collection of Impressionist art.
