Welcome to Montmartre

This oldy-worldy village tucked away in the North of Paris was once home to some of the best known French artists including Picasso, Van Gogh, Cocteau, Toulouse Lautrec, Renoir, Monet, Modigliani, Mondrian, and Dali. Some claim it was the birthplace of Post-Impressionism, others of Art-Nouveau.

The caberet culture was certainly booming during the Belle Epoque, the Moulin Rouge with its can-can, and the Bateau Lavoir with its Absynth drinkers. One can still hear echos of another era and not surprisingly as the area hasn’t changed all that much. Montmartre is still home to 240 bars, cafés bistros and pubs.
