Taste of Montmartre


Montmartre, the perched village that's best-known for the Sacré-Cœur church atop the hill, feels wonderfully remote from the rest of Paris. Once covered by vineyards, windmills, and artists' studios, Montmartre is today home to a growing restaurant and wine bar scene, one that mixes seamlessly with the artisanal food shops that have been catering for decades to the local Montmartois. For our tour, we'll avoid the tourist trap area near the Sacré-Cœur in favor of the charming Abbesses neighborhood that provided the setting for Amélie. We'll also descend along the rue des Martyrs, a street that takes its name from the gruesome legend of Saint-Denis, a Christian martyr who was executed here in the 3rd century. The street remains a pilgrimage route today for those in search of delicious food.


What we'll taste: After tasting some of this city's tastiest bread, we'll continue to eat our way through some of the area's best shops for cheese, chocolate, pâtisserie, and other artisanal French specialties. 


Price for a small group tour: 95€ per person, including all tastings. More on private tour options here.
