Monmartre’s legacy as Paris’ artistic epicenter continues this weekend, when the annual “Portes Ouvertes Montmartre” returns. For three days only, the artists of Montmartre will open the doors of their ateliers (artist space) to the public. On November 13th (from 6pm-9pm) and November 14th and 15th (from 11am-8pm), don’t miss your chance to stroll the neighborhood, following your artistic whims and letting your curiosity guide you.
Begin your tour at the welcome area located at 8 rue Milton, 75009 (tel: 01 40 23 02 92). Here you can familiarize yourself with the different participating artists and plan out which ateliers you would like to visit along your route.
