Montmartre, which means Mount of Martyrs, is a large hill located in the north overlooking Paris. The name is also given to the surrounding district.
Further to my third day in Paris, after strolling along Avenue des Champs-Élysées, I headed to Montmartre for a tour with Sandemans. They start it at 06:00 PM and it costs €14,00. The meeting place is at Starbucks just in front of the Moulin Rouge, and to get there is pretty easy – go down at Blanche Métro station.
Our first stop was nowhere else but the Moulin Rouge! This cabaret opened its doors in 1889, the same year when the Eiffel Tower was unveiled to the public at the Universal Exhibition. You can’t miss its signature bright red windmill at the foot of Montmartre. Entrance to this place of entertainment costs around €100,00, not including foods and drinks, and people are suggested to book tickets in advance.
