After lunch at L’Escargot, we walked to Sacré-Cœur. During our first trip to Paris, we went to the Montmartre Wine Festival. We made it to the Sacré-Cœur, but we never found the wine festival. This time we walked around the back of the cathedral and found Montmartre.  We laugh now, because that is probably where the festival was located.  This area is on our list to explore during our next trip. We walked around a little bit, but there is so much more to explore!

One of the funny stories that came out of this trip, was my obsession about finding bright-colored umbrellas. We knew the weather report was calling for lots of rain during our trip. As a photographer, I wanted colored umbrellas for us to use. Once we got there, we didn’t use umbrellas that much. However, there was only one real opportunity to take pictures with the umbrellas. Our visit to Sacré-Cœur allowed for one picture. The only think I don’t like about the walk up to the cathedral is the number of pick-pockets. You have to walk fast and stick together. Our cousin told us what to be aware of, so we were prepared.

The view of Paris is amazing from Sacré-Cœur!

  1. Helen!!! One of my favorite memories of Montmartre and the beautiful Sacre-Coeur is that on one visit walking up the hill to the cathedral, someone was playing the theme from Phantom of the Opera on the organ in the church!!! It was over-the-top. I shall never forget it…..ever. Thank you for your visit and great photos, I just love the beautiful Sacre-Coeur!
