A Montmartre Stroll: Guest Blogger
Paris, the eternal city of light and love is just a short trip from almost everywhere in Europe. From London, it’s only a couple of hours in the all time fun Eurostar. Paris has certainly a Je ne sais quoi and a lot has been said so I’m not going to bore you much, hopefully. I recently visited the city and without a doubt my favorite spot was Montmartre. Why? for the view, the charm, the history and the beauty.
Montmartre sits in the 18th Arrondissement in the north of Paris and it’s crowned by the Sacre Coeur Basilique. There are many metro stations that can be used, like Pigalle and Anvers on the line 2 and Abesses on ligne 12. It is worth wandering around, allowing to get lost and found. Walk the stairs to the church, enjoy the amazing view.
Many artist had studios in the area, like Monet, Picasso and Dali and we have all seen Amelie Poulain walking around. Montmartre has a bohemian feeling, a feeling of freedom and very characteristic of Paris.
What to see:
Espace Dali, with more than 300 originals this is one of the biggest permament exhibitions of the surrealist artist.
Place du Tertre, where tourist mingle with local artists.
Le Chat Noir Cabaret where french artist went for the fun!
The Carrousel is a must!
