Wine Harvest Festival in Montmartre

Montmartre's annual Grape Harvest Festival (Fête des Vendanges de Montmartre) takes place for five days through the second weekend of the month - October 11-15 this year.  Over half a million visitors attend, making this the city's biggest event after Nuit Blanche and Paris Plage.

The festival involves traditional wine-making activities such as stomping on the grapes, but there's a lot more to do and see:  a Grand Parade with lots of music and folk dancing on Saturday morning (starts at the vineyard at 11:45 and finishes at about 1:30pm at the 18th arrondissement's town hall), vineyard tours, many performances and exhibitions, over 20 free concerts (Thursday-Saturday), a dance on Sunday at nearby Square Louis Michel at the foot of Sacré-Coeur (5-7:30pm, free admission, lots of fun!)

In addition, the festival includes appearances by many celebrities, food and wine tastings, and kids' events. 

A variety of other fun events take place throughout the 18th arrondissement: parties in the district's many parks, plus other events such as dance performances and concerts hosted by the 18th's many small museums, galleries, and other organizations.

Most events are free but some such as the vineyard tours require advance reservations.  You can find a schedule and list of events at the Festival's website, or stop by Montmartre Tourist Office (21 place du Tertre) for information from the multi-lingual staff. 

In case you're wondering, the harvest of Gamay, Pinot Noir, and 26 other types of grapes comes from a vineyard believed to date back to Roman times (although current grapevines date from 1933).  It covers the hillside behind Musée de Montmartre, where you can easily see it from the street.

Although most of the 1,500 or so bottles of "Clos Montmartre" wine produced from the vines' harvest each year are auctioned to benefit local charities, you have a few other options for tasting it:  sample it at the Wine Festival or during one of the private "VIP" Montmartre tours that include the vineyard, or buy a small souvenir bottle from the Montmartre Tourist Office for around 50 Euros (yes, that's very pricey for, quite honestly, not great wine - but your money goes to charities).

Location:  Rue des Saules, 18th arrondissement 
Nearest Metro:
  Abbesses; take the funicular up the hill

Where's the best place to view fall foliage in Paris?  Thanks to the city's many parks, you'll see plenty of fall colors everywhere during October, but here are four favorite locations:

Jardin des Tuileries across from the Louvre - There's nothing more beautiful than the golden foliage of the plane trees during autumn in Paris.  Stroll through the long allées, or relax by the reflecting pools.  Nearest Metro Station:  Tuileries; 1st arrondissement

  • Parc Monceau - Filled with specimen trees that turn spectacular colors in the fall, this leafy park also contains a colonnade, a miniature Egyptian pyramid, a temple, a windmill, a grotto, an Italian vineyard, and a pond.  It sounds crazy like a crazy mix but somehow feels enchanting when you walk through it, and is particularly lovely in autumn.  Nearest Metro Station:  Monceau; Blvd de Courcelles, 8th arrondissement
  • Parc des Buttes Chaumont - This park boasts dramatic cliffs, a lake, a waterfall, a grotto, and even a mountain, plus local and exotic trees imported from around the world.  It's always spectacular - but even more so during the fall with the foliage turns golden - plus you'll find some sweeping views of the whole city.   Nearest Metro Stations:  Buttes Chaumont and Botzaris; 19th arrondissement
  • Canal Saint-Martin - Golden foliage along both banks of the canal cast lovely reflections in the water.  For the best views, go to the top of one of the arched iron bridges crossing the canal at intervals.  Once you've had your fill of fall colors, stop by one of the neighborhood's acclaimed bakeries or bistros for a snack or meal - perhap an orange blossom brioche at the Du Pain & Des Idées boulangerie (34 Rue Yves Toudic; closed on weekends), brunch at Chez Prune (36 Rue Beaurepaire), or currywurst-frites at Wunderbär (16 Rue Beaurepaire).   Nearest Metro Station:  Republique; 10th arrondissement

And don't forget the city's two huge wooded parklands on the east and west sides of Paris:  Bois de Vincennes in the 12th arrondissement, and Bois de Bologne in the 16th arrondissement.

Père Lachaise Cemetery

Parisians call Père Lachaise Cemetery in the Menilmontant neighborhood in far northeast Paris la Cite des Morts - the City of the Dead - and its rolling hills, elaborate monuments, and haunting beauty make it easy to channel the spirits of those buried here, including Molière, La Fontaine, Baron Haussmann, Isadora Duncan, Yves Montand, Simone Signoret, Frédéric Chopin, Oscar Wilde, Delacroix, Victor Hugo, and Jim Morrison of The Doors.  

Getting there:  Metro station:  Père Lachaise (Lines 2, 3), Blvd de Menilmontant and Avenue Gambetta, 20th arrondissement

Montparnasse Cemetery

Montparnasse Cemetery, a tranquil expanse in a part of the 14th arrondissement once popular with early 20th century artists, intellectuals, and writers is where you'll find the graves of Simone de Beauvoir, Jean-Paul Sartre, Charles Baudelaire, Serge Gainsbourg, Susan Sontag, and Eugène Ionesco.  

Filled with dappled light on sunny days but never really gloomy, even in the rain, it's where you'll often see neighborhood residents out for an evening walk.

Getting there: Avenue Rachel, 18th arr; Metro station:  Blanche (Line 2)

Montmartre Cemetery

Montmartre Cemetery, smaller and with quirkier monuments than the other two cemeteries, stretches across small hills and shadowy hollows in the southeast corner of the arty Abbesses Butte Montmartre quarter. 

Reputedly home to a band of feral cats, Cimetière Montmartre usually attracts only a trickle of visitors compared with other major cemeteries. 

However, this is where you can visit the final resting place for a number of creative elite including François Truffaut, Gustave Moreau, Heinrich Heine, Stendhal, Alexandre Dumas, Dalida, and Edgar Degas. 

Getting there:  3 Blvd Edgar Quinet, 14th arr; Metro station:  Edgar Quinet (Line 6)

Passy Cemetery

Passy Cemetery, another small cemetery with a fascinating assortment of elaborate tombs (such as the re-creation of an artist's studio) that reflect the wealth of its permanent residents, such as Guerlain (of perfume fame) family member and Bao Dai, the last Emperor of Vietnam. 

You'll also find a few artists such as Berthe Morisot and Edouard Manet, as well as composer Claude Debussy. 

Wonderful views of the Eiffel Tower across the Seine add to the charming ambiance.

Getting there:  2 Rue du Commandant Schloesing, 16th arr; Metro station:  Trocadero

Maison Gainsbourg:  A Quirky House Museum to Explore in October

Graffiti across the front of Serge Gainsbourg's home in the 6th arrondissement

The home of French music icon Serge Gainsbourg, located at 5 bis Rue de Verneuil in the 6th arrondissement, has now opened as a museum with permanent and temporary exhibitions celebrating the singer-songwriter's life, thanks to years of effort by his daughter, Charlotte Gainsbourg. 

Although the interior of the singer-songwriter's house is said to have remained untouched for most of the period since his death 30 years ago, the black-painted exterior wall has long been used by fans as a place to express their devotion in urban-art style with messages and drawings.

Two ways to explore are on offer:  1) a stroll through the house, accompanied by an original sound track featuring never-before-published recordings from Gainsbourg's archives and his daughter's voice as she recalls memories of her dad, and 2) a visit to the museum exhibition space.

Maison Gainsbourg is open from 10am - 5pm, Monday through Friday.

Tickets to the combined house and museum tour are currently sold out (due to space limitations, only a few visitors can move through the house at one time), but you can still reserve museum-only tickets.  See the Maison Gainsbourg website for more info.
