Photo Essay: Meandering Through Montmartre in Paris

There are more sides to Montmartre, the district that sits high atop the Paris landscape, than the crowds at Sacre Couer. This photo essay will show you some of the lovely or funny things that we saw as we walked around.

    So do we, Kate. I know lots of people who do a whiz trip to Paris and never want to go back. But we feel like we have barely scratched the surface of the place after 5 trips! I have to say that we are loving Brussels as well and I’m going to try and get some of those photos up soon.

    I’m returning to Paris in about 10 days. I rent a itsy bitsy studio in the 7th arrondisement and love it. I can stand in the kitchen and put on makeup lookng in the bathroom mirror, watching my eggs cook at the same time. The landlady is sweet, a bit hmmmm…looney… puts clutter all over the apartment, so I take a picture on day 1 then get it all out of my way, then I put it all back on day30. I don’t sit on the delicate €350 clear plastic designer chairs. Quelle horreur!
    I’ll will surely go to Monmarte this trip. Your photos make it look very enticing. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for your note, Jennifer. And our landlord Bruno was a complete charmer — not at all looney! Don’t blame you for NOT sitting on those chairs and what a good idea to document where everything was when you arrived. Have a wonderful time in Paris!
