During our stay in stay in Paris we climbed 'la butte Montmartre'. What a steep hill it is! I thought my condition wasn't too bad, but I was wrong. It must have been the delicious French bread, pâté's and cheeses that slowed me down.
We chose a walk from the Dutch travel book '100% Parijs'. We started at Saint-Georges square, walked through the district La Nouvelle Athéne and had coffee and cake in the garden of the Musée de la Vie Romantique, which I can recommend you. It's a lovely place to sit down and escape the hustle and bustle of the town for a short while. It's like a little oasis.
In the rue the Rochechouart (number 69 and number 73) you can find two shops, Mamie Bleu and Mamie, filled to the brink with vintage items. Hats, umbrella's, dresses, shoes, jewellery dating back as far as 1900. You name it, they have it!
Off course the 'piece de résistance' was the basilica Le Sacré Coeur, the amazing view over the rooftops of Paris and the tiny alleys behind the basilica and Place du Tetre, where you can see the painters at work. We ended our walk in front of the closed doors of the Moulin Rouge. We will have to come back to see a show another time!
Next week I will be posting my giveaway and introduce you to a new free Dutch online magazine, which I enjoyed reading very much!
Wish you all a sunny and happy weekend!
