Explore one of Paris’ most iconic neighborhoods: an incredible village within the city. For anyone who thinks Montmarte is only Place de Tertre, be warned that this hunt is focused on the ton of hidden nooks and beautiful buildings, along with of course the unmissable garden of the Sacré-Coeur.
The itinerary of this exciting hunt balances history, whimsical anecdotes and fascinating street art. You will also encounter all the symbols of Paris and some beautiful examples of both Art Nouveau and Art Déco (and become an expert-spotter of these special styles and features all over Paris!).
Each treasure hunt booklet includes a custom-made map and an envelope with illustrated answers. If you wish to hunt team against team, just order as many booklets as you need!
Where and when: The hunt starts at the Pigalle subway station and lasts about 2-2.5 hours. You can shorten it by starting at Abbesses subway station and skipping a few treasures. Please note that some points of interest are closed after 7PM and that the neighborhood may be crowded on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
Age group: This hunt is best suited for fun-seekers aged 8 and older, although younger kids will “get” a good number of the clues (you may need to use the shorter version for the younger hunters). Please note that unfortunately this hunt is not stroller-friendly, with flights of stairs and rocky pavements!
Combine it with: Depending on how tired or curious you are, you can combine this hunt with:
A visit to the Musée de Montmartre.
A visit to Sacré-Coeur Basilica.
Lunch or tea in one of the cafés on rue des Abbesses or in the lower part of rue des Martyrs (we show you the good ones in this hunt!).
A picnic in the garden below Sacré-Coeur (again, the hunt will lead you to some of the less touristy spots).
If you have a toddler with you, don’t miss the carrousel in front of the Abbesses subway station!
