Sacré-Coeur and Montmartre Tour

Interesting facts about Montmartre

Montmartre became part of Paris in 1860.

Many people thought that the Montmartre neighborhood had been part of Paris since the 17th or 18th century. In fact, the district was officially incorporated into the city in 1860.

Montmartre is home to one of the last working vineyards in Paris.

In the past, the surrounding areas of Paris have been filled with vineyards, working farms, and windmills to ground the harvests. Throughout the centuries, they were largely destroyed to make room for the growing population and expanding city. Today, only a handful of windmills in Paris remain and can only be found in Montmartre.

The Sacre-Coeur Basilica is built from limestone that bleaches itself.

If you’ve ever been to Paris, then you know that pollution is a huge problem. That’s why everyone wonders how the Sacré Cœur keeps its incredible white glow, despite no regular cleanings. The reason for that is that the limestone bleaches itself naturally each time it rains. 

Montmartre has the only funicular in Paris.

Located at Paris’ highest point, Montmartre is more difficult to reach than other parts of the city. For that reason, in 1900, a funicular was installed. This funicular has been running since then, taking visitors directly under the Basilica Sacré-Coeur from Place Saint Pierre.

Dos & Don’ts while visiting Montmartre

DON’T rush! There is a lot to see in Montmartre, so make sure to follow your guide and enjoy your exploration to the fullest. 

Why should you book a Montmartre walking tour?

Experience the unique atmosphere of Paris’ most enchanting neighborhood by taking a walking tour of Montmartre. During this two-hour guided walk, you will be transported back in time, following the footsteps of world-famous artists and writers. Also, you will have an opportunity to see a filming location for the movie Amélie, the oldest vineyard in Paris – Le Clos Montmartre, and Van Gogh’s former home.

Best Time To Visit Montmartre

If you plan to visit Montmartre, we highly recommend you avoid weekends. The streets of Montmartre usually get crowded during the weekends, which can ruin your sightseeing. Also, if you can, it would be best to plan your visit during the morning because many people flock to Montmartre from the afternoons till the evening hours.

Visiting in the morning will allow you to enjoy the streets more without the crowds. Of course, this also depends on the season. Montmartre will always be more crowded during the spring and summer than fall or winter.
