Montmartre & Sacre Coeur, Paris
In many areas of Paris you will find "street artists", but especially in Montmartre! Monmartre is known as an artists' community and you'll have plenty of opportunities to have a painting done of you or buy some artwork. Monmartre is well worth visiting as it has a unique atmosphere compared to the rest of Paris.
When I arrived to visit the Sacre Coeur I was surprised to find a lot of policeman and crowds of people. After enquiring, I found out that the Stations of the Cross was about to take place. This entails people singing hymns walking, kneeling and praying their way up the stairs into the church.
