The stairs in front of the Sacré Coeur is the most wonderful place I know in Paris (I'm sure I don't know them all!!!). When the sun is shining there are often people from all over the world sitting around, some play guitar and sing. I love the atmosphere there.
Basilica Sacre Coeur
The Sacré-Coeur Catholic basilica was built at the end of the 19th century at the top of the Montmartre hill in Paris. Its famous white pastry like architecture is dominating the city.
Great place to visit, admire the views and meet the people from all over the world.
The Latin Quarter
The Latin Quarter takes up most of the 5th arrondissement, and part of the 6th.
The Latin Quarter has been a haven for budget travelers, international students, and artists for quite a long time.
It’s not as cheap as it used to be, because now it’s also quite trendy. But you will still find lots of great and inexpensive places to eat as well as plenty of bars and night clubs for socializing after hours.
What to do and see in the Latin Quarter:
The Pantheon in Paris
Markets of Rue Mouffetard
Musee du Moyen Age (formerly known as the Musee de Cluny)
Musee de la Prefecture de la Police
Church of St-Severin
Church of St-Julien-le-Pauvre
Church of St-Etienne-du-Mont
Shakespeare & Co. Bookshop The lively and social atmosphere which dominates this part of Paris to this day.
Latin Quarter Metro & RER Stations – Cluny/La Sorbonne, Maubert/Mutualite, Cardinal Lemoine, Jussieu, Place Monge, Censier/Daubenton, St. Michel, Luxembourg
Latin Quarter Bus Lines – 27, 87, 86, 24, 21, 47, 87, 84
Truly, only french women know how to use a small black dress, and indeed - only french women are able to get on a bike wearing one... And yes, I mean it!
I agree: "French women really do have that certain something that you always hear about. They are not necessarily wearing something amazing; it’s that they innately know how to put the entire "ensemble" together ".
I loved this palace, but unfortunately we did not see much of the gardens or any of the smaller palaces on the grounds. That is the one drawback if you are with a tour group, time is always limited and you only see certain things that they deem most important.
