We had a later start than usual to our day. We headed out around 9:30 a.m. to go to Montmartre, which is where Moulin Rouge is located.
Making our way up the hill to Montmartre, we were faced with the view of the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris. It stood pure white on the hilltop. The basilica represents the purity among the scandal of the rest of the area.
During our walk up the hill, we stopped to listen to a man playing the harp. It was so peaceful. We were looking down at Paris with a harp playing as our soundtrack.
From Montmartre, I felt that I was on top of Paris. The Eiffel Tower was minuscule in the distance.
Montmartre was how I pictured Paris to be. There were artists drawing and painting photos in the streets.
The entire area was charming. There were cute houses and restaurants. The whole area had a great vibe.
There were many quirks to the area. Small crocked streets and interesting sculptures were a staple in Montmartre.
To make our way to Moulin Rouge, we passed by quite a few X rated stores. Cancan is risque, yet it is the classiest scandal out there. We did not see a show, however being there was enough.
We had the chance to see Abbesses Square, which is home to one of the last two remaining original metro entrances in Paris. The glass covered entrance was beautiful. Such intricate detail for a subway.
We ended off our afternoon in Paris eating a variety of Pizzas. This was pizza like I never had before. We even had desert pizzas with chocolate and caramel.
