Walk around the area, you can have a very tasty ice cream at Amorino! And take a look at the lively and colorful Fountain Stravinsky on the south west of the Centre Pompidou.
Now go explore one of my favorite neighborhoods in Paris, Montmartre. I can walk for hours in its charming narrow side streets. Montmartre is the highest point in Paris, it has an amazing view to the city right on the steps of the church of Sacré-cœur Basilica (Roman Catholic church). This area is home to many artists and writers: Picasso, Van Gogh and many others have lived in this area. To go there, take the metro 2 and exit the station Blanche and there, you’ll find yourself in front of the Moulin rouge. Moulin Rouge is a cabaret, best known as the birthplace of the Cancan French dance.
Walk to the square Louise Michel and take the funicular (use same ticket of the metro/RER) to the top of the hill. Enjoy the beautiful view on Paris.
Avoid going there in the night!
Iconic white church in Montmartre
Walk to the west of the church to Place du Tertre. This square is full of colorful cafés & restaurants. There are also many watercolor paintings and caricature artists that can draw you!
You can visit the Espace Dali, which is a Museum of sculptures made by Salvador Dali.
Walk down to the Place des Abesses, you’ll find A wall with the words ‘I love you’ in multiple languages Mur des je t’aime, Place des Abesses (You can take the metro here too to come back – Metro 12)
Don’t miss the chance of having THE fast entry card that allows you to visit museums and attraction for free: the Paris Pass here. You can read about it in another post on Saving on sightseeing in Paris.
