La ville lumiére
Today we decided to visit Sacre Cœur de Montmartre (35, rue du Chevalier de la Barre – 75018 Paris). The Basilica of Sacre Cœur or the Sacred Heart, situated on more than 400 meters altitude, offers one of the most beautiful views. Its a must see when travel to Paris. The Basilic itself is breathtaking beautiful, all in pure white.
You can get even higher as it is possible to access the dôme of the Basilica, we didn’t as it was a really hot day but the view from the Sacre Cœur stairs was really awesome anyway.
A must! Behind the Basilica You will find an absolutely charming mixture of artists workshops, museums, restaurants, souvenir shops, painters in action etc. There is a lot to discover in ” the cœur du vieux Montmartre” and to enjoy Your stay even more it’s possible to take a pediastrian tour. Check with the Tourist Office named Syndicat d’initiative de Montmartre (21, place du Tertre 75018 – Paris).
Did You know that Paris has its own vineyard? La vigne de Montmartre or more precisely “Le Clos-Montmartre” is 2000 m2 situated between rue Saint-Vincent and rue des Saules. The grapes for the wine are collected in October every year and the benefice is used for charity in Montmartre.
Don’t miss “Le Mur des Je T’aime”. A wall of 40 m2 filled with the words “I Love You” in different languages. You will find it on the square Jehan Rictus behind la Place des Abbesses.
Party time! We are going to see the famous cabaret at Moulin Rouge (82, bd de Clichy – 75018 Paris) tonight and I am really exited.
