Join us on a tour that you won’t find in your guide books!
Friedrich Nietzsche once said that an artist has no home in Europe except in Paris, and we’ll explore the Montmartre area where Vangogh, Monet, Picasso and so many others called home. This is also the area of neon lights and gritty edge that made Moulin Rouge so infamous. You will get to experience cheap markets, beautiful cafes and the true underground of Paris.
Our guides will point out street art and alternative living along the way, and we will stop off to take a look at the street art of Belleville! Interesting and lively! There’s poetry and live music, hidden streets, graffiti and street art. Belleville has been bumping since the 80’s when artists first started flooding in to live in squats, leaving the city overflowing with art.
As if it couldn’t get any better, we offer the tour for free! The guides are true locals who can’t wait to share their city and passion with you! That being said, tips are always encouraged… We wouldn’t want to take the saying starving artists too literally 😉
Be prepared for the best recommendations for pubs, clubs, cafes and anything else the cool kids are doing these days from our guides!
