It was yet another cold but sunny day in Paris. Today we literally hiked up to one of the most popular and scenic parts of Paris, Montmartre and its glorious Basilique du Sacre-Coeur.
Next was a visit to the neighborhood of Belleville. Another hilly area settled by working class people for centuries northeast of the City Center. It was made popular by the beloved Edith Piaf, who sang on the streets of Paris as a girl and was widely popular during her life. Today, it’s still a diverse working class part of the city.
Soon it’s time for lunch. Our favorite in the area was closed but we stumbled upon a new discovery and managed to get a table. It was a delightful surprise. Add this to your list when you next visit. Moncoeur Belleville 1, Rue Des Envierges 75020 Paris, http: moncoeurbelleville.com
It was a fun day with a long walk through a part of Paris many visiting folks overlook. Walking distance was 5.6 miles and 20 flights of stairs!
Tomorrow is our last full day in Paris. We will be spontaneous since we have no plans at this time. Monday we fly to Lisbon for our next adventure.
