Have you heard of the legendary, extravagant, Montmartre neighborhood ? Well, don’t eat before because we are about to enjoy Paris’ dreamiest little village, by mouth…
Let’s meet near the world’s most famous windmill to get to know each other over the Icons of French Tastes..and History.
We love the madcap stories behind picturesque Montmartre–the artists and poets, the singers and the tragedies, so join me as we follow in the footsteps of Edith Piaf, Renoir, Picasso, Charlie Chaplin, Monet, Cezanne, Degas, Van Gogh, other notables as we check out their old haunts, see where they found inspiration (or just a glass of wine!) …find scenes from famous paintings. Then explore the Sacre Coeur Basilica.
We revel in the bohemian atmosphere and taste the our way through legendary French tastes and learn about memorable stories like the birth of the ‘Can-Can’ dance…see one of the few, hidden, working vineyards in Paris, and then taste the Montmartre vintage with cheese and award-winning baguette.
From the Belle Epoque to daring new flavors from upstart bakers, to a local ‘guingette,’ (historic bar) we will explore one of Paris’ most fascinating, if at times scandalous, little neighborhoods and all the treasures it holds. You’ll be prepared to enjoy Montmartre like a local 😉 with plenty of pastries, wine, crepes, and charcuterie.
