Of course everyone knows Sacre-Coeur, the Place du Tertre, and the Moulin Rouge, but there are many fascinating things to see off the beaten track in Montmartre. Even before it became a village it was known because of the martyrdom of Saint-Denis, hence its name. Affectionately referred to as "la butte", Montmartre did not actually become part of Paris until it was annexed in the 1860's as the 18th arrondissement. It has long been a favorite place for artists, it still has several cobbled streets lined with charming houses, a vineyard, some old cabarets and two windmills! Join us to see the Montmartre the tourists miss.
Don’t forget to wear comfortable shoes.
Those who wish may join the instructor after the tour for lunch.
