Timhotel Opéra Blanche Fontaine · HÔTEL 4* Paris
Walk inb the heart of Montmartre
In the back of your head you'll have this idea that Montmartre is like a Jean-Pierre Jeunet film set, but Montmartre is so much more than that. Follow the guide and you'll see this for yourself.
What about movies that would make you walk...
As you leave the hotel, head up rue Pierre Fontaine towards place Blanche. In front of you stands the Moulin Rouge, the city's most famous music hall. Next, explore rue Lepic and its Café des Deux Moulins, which was the setting for the film, Amélie.
Then continue along rue des Abbesses and turn right. Boutiques, cafés and little shops remind you that Montmartre is a thriving local community. Take rue Yvonne Le Tac to reach Sacré-Cœur, so symbolic of the neighbourhood.
... and discover the true Paris
Next, head to the famous place du Tertre where artists sketch the portraits of passers-by. Continue onto Clos Montmartre and its vineyards, because yes, Paris does indeed produce wine. Go back down via rue Caulaincourt to reach the Montmartre cemetery. Here, you'll see some famous tombs.
Your tour ends a few metres further down boulevard de Clichy, one of the liveliest streets in the capital.
