Basilica of Sacré Coeurin in Montmartre, Paris, France

Our last day in Paris we dropped our bags at the train station and waked to the Basilica of Sacré Coeur and Montmartre. It’s a lot of stairs. When you get to the top, there’s bunch of tired tourists sitting around. The view is great and Montmartre is cute. This is where the Moulin Rouge and Amélie were filmed. If you google Amélie, you can get directions to all the places used in the film; we didn’t do that.

Much to Matt’s chagrin, I believe in traveling like we’ll never go back (unless going somewhere that’s under a 2-hour drive away). So it was a busy week. I’d go back to Paris in a heartbeat, maybe do some of less-touristy stuff. It’s a shame that the day trips offered from here are such a poor value in terms of cost and time spent on the bus v. time spent in the city.
