Paris Part II
Updated: Apr 6, 2020
On our last morning we grabbed some pastries from the boulangerie near our hotel and jumped on the metro over to a beautiful little part of Paris called Montmartre. The cobbled streets here on the hill up towards the Sacré-Cœur are lined with little shops and pretty houses. Enjoy the smell of fresh coffee and baking bread as you peek down all the side streets.
The Sacré-Cœur church is a stunning viewpoint to take in the city and admire the architecture.
I picked myself up a little navy beret, because I can't go anywhere without buying a beret, let alone Paris!
It was a bit of a gloomy day but the rain was holding off so we walked all the way back into the city, via galeries lafayette for a little window shopping! Past Laduree to pick up some macaroons as gifts, and we stopped for some lunch al fresco style in Jardin des Tuileries.
All the way to the famous Musée d'Orsay.
You'll have likely seen photos of the famous clock which you can peek though for more views of Paris, but our main objective was to see Vincent van Gogh's Starry Night Over the Rhône.
Truly incredible in person. We stopped by a few other exhibits and wandered through some utterly spectacular ballrooms (this place is a maze!)
I of course loved all the floral paintings (go figure!), especially Monet's Le Jardin de l'artiste à Giverny.
After a cultured morning it was time for one last crepe before the Eurostar home. We had the most wonderful time in Paris, it really blew us away and we had high expectations! So put it on your hit list, bon voyage!
