Still accompanied by your guide, continue your visit inside the basilica and contemplate one of the largest mosaics in the world. Located in the apse, the Mosaic of Christ in Glory represents the risen Christ surrounded by the Saints who protect France. After the Basilica your guide will take you to the village of Montmartre. This neighborhood of Montmartre has always stood apart from the rest of Paris, not just as the large hill in the city’s northern 18th Arrondissement, but as the home to artists, revolutionaries and outsiders who have played an important part in the unique history of Paris. These streets hold wild stories and a unique perspective around every corner and the Place du Tertre is one of the most famous squares of Paris. There is no neighborhood more magical than Montmartre. You will then be taken to the famous Place du Tertre, where you can admire the painters or just take it easy in a typical Parisian café while watching the world walk by.
