Sunday stroll around Montmarte

View from Rue des Saules

 At the turn of the twentieth century, the Lapin Agile was a favorite spot for struggling artists and writers, including PicassoModiglianiApollinaire, and Utrillo. It was Picasso's painting "Au Lapin Agile" that made the cabaret well known worldwide.

View from Musée Montmartre and Renoir Gardens. 
Museum of Montmartre is situated at 12 Rue Cortot which during its heyday was the meeting place and residence of many artists including Auguste Renoir. Perfect place where to learn about history of Montmartre, its artists and cabarets.
