Montmartre typifies all things quintessentially Parisian, from terrace cafes to romping bars and clubs, drunken can-can dancers to budding street artists and performers, bourgeois-bohemian apartments to tiny cobblestone streets. We begin our tour at the border of Montmartre by the infamous Moulin Rouge. From there, we move up the hill to artist studios, statues of pop stars, and the church at the highest point of Paris; Basilica Sacré Coeur. On our tour of Montmartre, we discover what it is that made Vincent Van Gogh, Toulouse Lautrec, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali want to call this eclectic district home.
