Paris Trip 2010 Day Eight and Nine – Montmartre and The Louvre

Paris 2010
I was welcomed by The Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus of Paris when I reached Montmatre to meet Jovie. Commonly known as Sacré-Cœur Basilica was built between 1875 and 1914, it is located at the summit of the hill of Montmartre, the highest point in Paris.

Montmatre and art are inseparable. Street painters thrive on a lively tourist trade as travelers flock to this picturesque district.

A permanent exhibition of more than 300 works of the painter and sculptor Salvador Dali is on display here too, but alas time was not on our side.

Coincidentally, we met the couple of previous day, Crono and Tze Pen in Montmatre.

This was our third trip to the Louvre Museum. But we had ample time this time around for the exhibits.

Yes, the reason and goal for majority of the visitors here. Personally, I felt it was overrated.

Awesome sunset.

Spent the morning of our last day visiting Musée d’Orsay, before heading to Le Halles for lunch with Crono and Tze Pen again.
