Hop on the Petit Train de Montmartre and enjoy a picturesque journey through the charming streets of Paris' artistic hub while taking in the stunning views of Paris. The mini-train will take you up and down the winding streets of the hill-topped Montmatre neighbourhood, stopping off at the iconic Sacre Coeur and infamous Moulin Rouge for some of the best views of Paris. A great way to see the sites, without all the effort!

Departs from Place Blanche (opposite the Moulin Rouge) or at the top of the hill, Place de Tetre. Enjoy and guided commentary in French or English and even a bit of music, too!
