Today we traveled about 45 minutes on the subway to reach the hip and cool hill of Montmartre. The butte of Montmartre is the highest point in Paris and the views from the Basilica of Sacre Coeur are simply spectacular.
I'll blog later about the magnificent Basilica and the charming winding streets, squares and terraces but I wanted to share now some photos of the picturesque old village square of Place du Tertre where artists and portraitist set up their easels each day to sell their work.
The square at night with the holiday lights.
These Santa photos were taken today at the Place du Tertre and are for my friend Anne: Santa Claus also likes to hang from the window sills in Paris! I love the smallish Santa coming down with a parachute. So cute!
