About the tour

We will start our visit in Pigalle in what was the "red district" of Paris, then we will leave the sordidness to switch to the romanticism and what better way than to start with Amélie's café, we will continue towards what is called "the new Athene". It is in this district that the Romantic artistic movement emerged during this century, symbolised today by the house of Ary Scheffer, which houses the Museum of Romantic Life.

Meet Patrick Herpe

Patrick Herpe

Patrick isn't one to shy away from travel and adventure. "I was lucky enough to travel the world with my job, discover different cultures, and meet incredible people!" he says, after having explored multiple cities across Europe and Asia. On his tours, you may catch more than a surprise or two about Paris. "In fact, it is an everyday experience. I'm a native Parisian, but every day, I continue to discover new things, new secrets about Paris. It's a never-ending story," he laughs. It was his love for Paris that led him to become a guide. "I'm a father and a teacher, and I realized that my passion was to share my knowledge, so I decided to be a guide about one of my passion: Paris!" Patrick chips in. "I enjoy sharing the love and passion I have for my own city, Paris. Its monuments, its history, its gastronomy, its culture, and all of its little secrets. I can't wait to share all of these with you!" "At the end of my tour I always give a virtual bise - two in fact being a good Parisian!" he laughs.

Such a delight touring with Patrick. Really interesting to learn more about the red light district and seeing the Museum of Romantic Life. I loved that we saw the Moulin Rouge and the Cafe from the movie Amelie. Would have loved to see more filming locations of these movies.

I enjoyed the tour because I learned about the "red district" and the Romantic artistic movement, and could have a glance of the Museum of the Romantic Life, the Moulin Rouge and the Amelie's cafe. But, I was attracted by the title of the tour about Amelie, one of my favourite movies that was nominated to an Oscar and won the Cesar in 2001, and really I couldn't feel anything (only a short glance of Amelie's cafe and the contemporary Parisian life, set in Montmartre) related to the movie and the delicious character of the shy waitress, played by Audrey Tautou. Thank you, Patrick for braving the rain to deliver this tour!
