Ready to hit Paris' most trodden pavement
We discovered where Van Gogh lived with his brother. We heard about the latest theory about how he lost his ear during a sword duell with Gauguin. We were told how La Gouloue invented the Can-Can dance. We located where Toulouse-Lautrec danced on the tables despite his illness. And we stood in awe infront of the windmill where Renoir painted his famous "Bal au moulin de la Galette".
Starting point: The Moulin Rouge

Ever heard of the famous Dalida? A world-famous singer and actress born in Egypt with Italian origins but naturalised French. In 1973, she recorded a French version of the Italian song "Paroles Paroles", originally performed by Mina, with her close friend Alain Delon.

"Una signora siciliana" who moved to Montmartre in 1936.

The opening scene to the flim "Amélie"
A wonderful day to be exploring Paris
Ever wondered where the wine "Clos de Montmartre" comes from?
The "Lapin Agile" was a favorite spot for struggling artists and writers, including Picasso, Modigliani, Apollinaire, and Utrillo who used to pay their bills with scetches.
My absolute favourite: The pink house!
