We all know the main places of entertainment in Montmartre and also a bit of its history by now. But do we know where the artists lived before? What cafes or bars they did prefer? What about their love life, their friendships… Do you know where the artists’ ateliers were situated in this area rich of history? And today, where do all those Montmartre artists live?

Montmartre offers us different tours depending on the chosen theme. Anyway you will spend a very good time with your guide !
