Here's a great self guided walking tour with great captions. This self guided tour should ideally take around 2 hours depending upon how much time you dwell on each place. In fact, there may be no more than 1.5 hours of walking. The walking tour starts at Place Pigalle (MAP). At this point, you will cross a small bridge over a canal and then another bridge crossing the river Seine. The next part of the tour follows the path of the river Seine.

Perhaps you want to get to know Montmartre on your own? Then I recommend using the bookingauto.com service. With a rented car, you can start your walk from anywhere.

The Montmartre walking tour covers some of the main historical sites in the region, including the famous Castle of Montmartre. This impressive castle was one of the principal sites of the French Revolution and served as one of the council chambers, government offices and parliaments of the king. A wonderful feature of this historic castle is that you can still see part of the Castle by walking along part of its cobbled stone pathway. This cobbled path is part of a planned upgrade of the entire site, which also includes a new visitor center, a cafe, an art gallery and a restaurant.

For the best part of your Montmartre walking tour, consider renting a vehicle, which allows you to visit more sites. A rental car allows you to explore a greater variety of the historic area and gives you the freedom to move around more quickly. It also offers you the convenience of having your own transport, rather than relying on the chauffeur services offered by most hotels. If you take time to prepare a detailed Montmartre walking tour map, it will make your trip more enjoyable.
