Travel Photo: Sacré-Cœur – Paris, France
Travel Photo: Sacré-Cœur- Paris, France
When Carol and I made our first journey up the Eiffel Tower years ago, we looked across the landscape and saw the Basilica of Sacré-Cœur standing atop the highest point in all of Paris: butte Montmartre.
I set in my mind to visit the Sacré-Cœur, and it has taken us quite a number of years to actually make the journey.
If you’re feeling energetic, there are stairs leading up to the basilica. However, our Avalon Waterways tour guide had us approach the top of the butte via the funicular.
If you’re looking for something to do for a half-day in Paris, take a journey to Montmartre. Not only can you explore the basilica, but the village of Montmartre offers cafés, shopping, and oodles of photo opportunities as you stroll the quaint streets.
