Paris – Day 8 Sacre Coeur, Montmartre

On our final non travel day we took the Metro (and then the funicular) to the top of Montmartre to visit Sacre Coeur and the surrounding area. It is breathtaking. Certainly from the outside it is the most spectacular chuch in Paris. Notre Dame is bigger and more impressive perhaps but Sacre Coeur takes your breath away. No pictures inside so I can only show the exterior, which is just fine. Even the back of the church is beautiful!

Afterwards we walked around the area and wound our way past Moulin Rouge to our subway stop for the next leg of the day. Next stop, the Marmottan Monet museum. While their Monet collection was extensive, I was expecting more. Very good, I was just expecting more Monet and less “others”.

We capped of the night with a birthday dinner for Bryan at Nomads. What a wonderful meal. Happy Birthday Bryan.
