During the Belle Époque period around the turn of the 19th century, Paris’ Montmartre neighborhood was the heart of the city’s blooming artistic scene. Make your own way to this creative enclave to meet your guide, and set off on a walking tour. On a leisurely stroll down cobblestone streets and past charming cafés, learn about the artistic history of the area and hear stories about the many renowned artists who lived and worked here.
See the former home of van Gogh, the windmill that inspired Renoir’s Bal du moulin de la Galette and the legendary Moulin Rouge nightclub captured in many paintings by Toulouse-Lautrec. Conclude your guided tour at the base of the Sacré Coeur Basilica, where you can take in sweeping views of Paris from the city’s highest point.
Your guide will issue your skip-the-line ticket to the Musée de l'Orangerie and direct you to this lovely museum nestled in the Tuileries Gardens on the banks of the River Seine. Explore the galleries at your leisure, admiring Impressionist masterpieces like Monet’s Water Lilies series and works by Cézanne, Matisse, Picasso, Renoir and more.
With an optional upgrade, continue your artistic exploration with a skip-the-line ticket to the Musée d'Orsay. Bypass the long queues and be inspired by the world’s largest collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings.
Please note: Ask your guide for directions if you want to visit the Musée de l'Orangerie and Musée d'Orsay (if you've upgraded) right after your walking tour. Alternatively, you can use your ticket to visit on another day of your choice.
