The Montmartre Movable Feast combines three restaurant stops, where we will eat an Entrée (appetizer) of charcuterie and cheese, a Plat (main course), and a dessert. All plates are paired with appropriate wines and cider. Between restaurants, we will take in the sites and explain the history of Montmartre and its inhabitants, and what makes this quarter of Paris so unique. About Montmartre La Republique de Montmartre is a neighborhood unlike any other in Paris. Situated on a hill in the 18th Arrondissement, Montmartre has the feel of a small French village with unparalleled views of the rest of the city. It is little wonder that such artists as Picasso, Van Gogh, and Renoir lived here for inspiration.

Visit of the historical area in the center of Paris: the Marais Private tour in the historical center of Paris, the aristocratic area of the Marais. On foot or by bicycle. The Golden age The glorious time of the Marais was during the 17th and 18th centuries. The king Henry IV built the Royal Place, the current Place des Vosges. It became the center of the elegance during this time. That's why many aristocrats and wealthy families had settled down in this area. Many private mansions were built, with gorgeous decoration and splendid architecture. The first "salons" were held in the Marais, and became the place to meet wits, elegant ladies, prominent writters and scientists. Thus, Paris made a reputation of capital of sociability. From decline to historical patrimony At the end of Louis XIV's reign in 1715, the Marais was gradually abandonned by the aristocrats. The Royal Court moved to Versailles, the faubourg Saint-Germain and the faubourg Saint-Honoré. During the 19th century, the Marais became poor and industrious. Workshop were built in the former gardens and courtyards. Hopefully, Haussmann didn't destroy it! It's only in 1962 that the Marais became officially protected as historical patrimony, and that it's rehabilitation has started until nowadays. Today, the Marais is a trendy area, with bohemian and effortless elegance. Located in the center of Paris, Parisians love to stroll around this unique area due to it's rich historical past.
